Portrait Painting for Practice

I’ve been pretty busy focused on painting portraits, painting pets and pretty much just really focusing on art. I did a project recently called 100 Paintings in 300 Days. If you look at the previous paintings on this blog you will see how far I have come in skill. I love the portraits.

I am really working toward changing this blog to focus on my personal life. For my professional website visit: robertwheater.com. Also for a behind the scenes look at my art visit: painted.robertwheater.com.

I AM AVAILABLE.  I am an award winning portrait artist in Central California. If you want truly extraordinary and unique art email me today. info@robertwheater.com.

An Organic change to Painting

Portrait painting is something I have done in the past and did in art school. I moved to photography while in art school, I used photography to create references for painting – my original major was design/new media. I changed a few times as a lot of artists do and ended up with a photography major. In 2008, in the midst of economic downturn I started my wedding and portrait photography. It has been a fun ride and I am not stopping but I am moving toward portrait painting as a focus in my business. The first reason – I love photography and painting but the photographic industry has become oversaturated. Everyone knows at least one “professional” (read: amateur) photographer – most people know more. Cameras have become affordable and many people think they can make a quick buck or even start their own studio. I got an art degree because I love art and that is my path in life – I have always worked in the design field. My first jobs were at printing presses and then design and I have always been involved in art and design. Twenty years in art  with two degrees. I am wise enough to see that photography is something a lot of people want to do, it is accessible and social media drives it. I love photography but I also love other pursuits. Painting is a big one.

So. I never actually gave the first reason – there is too much competition and not enough demand. While in painting, you must spend years learning it and most people get into photography because the think (incorrectly) that it is something they can just pick up and now they have a job. It’s not. So, the person out to find a photographer must sort through hundreds of photographers in their area. You need luck and word of mouth to really get out there. The second reason is 99% of photographic decisions and most purchases for a home are made by women. It’s hard to compete with other women in their field. I have done it for four years and I am pretty good at it. So, I have decided to move to painting. I am still remaining in photography, I love it but I do it for my passion, not for the dollar.

So painting it is. It’s an evolution fusing the digital world of photography and my traditional artistic skill. Here is a painting of Kara. It is almost finished :) I rarely put finished work up because when I think about posting work, it’s halfway done – when I finish it – it’s time to give it to a client which is sometimes difficult to do. A lot of my time is invested in painting and it’s not like I made it for someone else… which I did.. I painted it for me because I love to paint… and it’s pretty much that simple.

Kym | Portraits

I don’t publish client work on the internet because almost all of my clients prefer privacy, so in order to get images to show on my blog and on the internet I use models and friends. Kym had never modeled before and wanted to try it out. Here are shots of her done in my edgy fashion/glamor style. I have only been a professional photographer for a year, starting right after art school at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
There were many challenges in this shoot, wind being the worst. Because I rarely shoot in studio and prefer environmental and on location sessions. Kym was great and we got some great shots. Remember that you can click images to view a larger version.

Natalie

Natalie is one of my favorite models to work with. She has pretty much been around from day one with her family. She has also seen my photography skill go from just taking pictures and refining a form to making art. Making the transition from art school to business has taken time. This was our fifth session. This is a prevalent style that you will see in my gallery wraps.
As an artist, the click of the camera is just a single step in the creation of my products. It starts with talking about your final product. What are we doing? In Natalie’s case, I was practicing a new style. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do with the images. They would be artistically edited to show my clients another product of mine and a style and product I offer.
Gallery wraps are for works of art, they are not for common photos. They are expensive and built to last generations. I believe that families should collect gallery wraps for their families at specific milestones in the road of life. To me, gallery wraps are the epitome of celebrating ourselves as a family. It, far more than a common 8×10, will celebrate the passage from high school to adulthood with our senior gallery wraps. Celebrate your family with a gallery wrap that will serve as an heirloom for generations.

My gallery wraps can be traditional but my art lies in a painted contemporary style. I can do traditional, but I don’t think it lends to the gallery wrap art piece as well as my painted style. There are other products like a traditional black and white image with deep blacks on metallic black and white paper wrapped around a floated frame that stands a few inches from the wall. In my gallery wraps, I prefer bright colors and paint-like canvases with beautiful photos. If you have a dream image, come to me with it and we can figure out how to create it together.

Fine Art vs. Photography

In the world today, photography is everywhere and everyone has a camera. Local photographers have multiplied and multiplied creating a minefield of photographers, which ones are good and the ones that aren’t are difficult to find.
In today’s photography world, my style of photography stands out because it is fine art. Fine art is much different in the fact that I create photographic art printed on canvas or fine art photographs. Real photographs are also something I provide, instead of inkjet prints. I am not one to look down on other art but the medium of our art is as important as the display itself. I would say that every photographer out there is using inkjet prints, if they are making real photographs they will let you know. You can’t print fine art on an inkjet. For one, it fades after a decade if it has UV protection less if it is not protected with a coating or UV glass frame. Two, fine art is not meant to fade, ever. Great precautions are made to protect fine art. I make real photographs created using light and a chemical process. The photograph alone will last your lifetime right out of the package. Oh and it will last for at least another generation. These photographs will last for 100 years, far longer if protected further behind museum glass (which we use in our frames).
So, the primary thing you need to ask yourself is this – do you want a picture or do you want art?
