The Paintru Journal
The history of portraiture is inextricably wrapped in everything it means to be human. The portrayal of a person - or people - has, for millennia, acted as political propaganda, shaped religious and social beliefs, and fostered collective opinion and imagination among communities.
How a person is portrayed is as important as the who: think of Alexander the Great and you will be hard-pressed to picture anything but heroic, leonine hair and a serene expression evocative of Golden Age Greece. It was carefully planned artistic rendering, as well as an astute awareness of the history of Hellenistic art, that transformed Alexander from leader of men to demi-god.
It’s time to talk types of painting styles. The best thing about commissioning a Paintru artwork is that you have full control over the stylistic appearance of your painting. When it comes to artistic preference, we know that one size does not fit all – however, we have a few pointers to ensure your style choice suits you.
You have an idea in mind, a blank wall posed and waiting for its feature piece of custom artwork, but a little unsure of how to bring your artistic vision to life. Let's talk about different types of painting styles to spark inspiration and kickstart your custom painting masterpiece.
