OilWorks Master Artist Canvas

by Caroline Cohoon | April 22, 2009

Our OilWorks enhancement is the option to have an artist digitally paint your image to give it the look of an oil painting instead of a photograph. The True Artist option is $79 and an artist adds brush strokes and embellishments to the entire image by hand before we print it onto the canvas. The Master Artist option is $249 (a new reduced price!) and our artist creates a new masterpiece painting out of the image. For all Master Artist pieces, the artist doing the work has a consultation with the customer regarding their desires for the finished piece. After all the digital work has been completed a proof is sent over for approval. Once the canvas has been printed and stretched the artist then takes a clear embellishing gel and paints on top of the canvas to give it real brush strokes and texture.

Customers often ask what is the difference between these options to warrant such a large price jump. With a Master Artist OilWorks you truly get a one-of-a-kind piece of art that is inspired by your original image. Here are images of our most recent Master canvas, with the original photo taken in a Parisian park by Terry from Seattle and the OilWorks artwork was done by Renee Auguste.
