Live Portrait Painting on the Boardwalk, Port Solent
|Author: Galleryowner||Published: 12th May 2012 17:04|
Come & watch an artist at work & have your portrait painted from just £25.
Above the Blue gallery at Port Solent is thrilled to annouce that one of the gallery's house artists, Fatima Pantoja, has kindly agreed to come to Port Solent to paint live on the Boardwalk whatever the weather.
Sit & have your portrait painted in just 15 minutes or so, in traditional charcoal/pastel or drawn on her computer as a digital image - just like David Hockney's recent work.
And if you don't like what she produces you don't have to buy it! What have you got to lose with such an amazing offer.
Spanish-born, Fatima is a highly trained artist with a wonderful talent for portrait painting, capturing the character of a person very quickly.
She will be painting on the Boardwalk at Port Solent on the Spring Bank Holiday (4 June) & on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (5 June), from 11am on both days.
Watching her work will be fascinating in itself & I'm sure when you see the quality of her paintings you'll be tempted to take the plunge. What an opportunity to have a high quality original portrait hanging on your wall or to give away as a gift perhaps. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a painting of your children or grandchildren - so much more special than a photograph.
Here are a few examples of her various portraits - you may recognise some of the faces:
