Delores Del Rio

20x20" acrylic painting on canvas, unframed and wired to hang. I've done a bunch of paintings in this style of silent/classic movie actresses. I could do portraits of anyone in this style, provided with a picture and colour palate; my process is to use a cut-out filter in photoshop, change the colour, and work from the printout on canvas. The surface is swirled with gesso and getting the lines and shapes clean takes FOREVER; the time-frame on a custom piece would be months. That's the closest I can narrow it down. I've included the reference photo I used for this painting. They are stylized but I work to keep them recognizable. Custom orders would cost considerably more, even for the same size; it's easy to sell something that's done and just sitting around in my studio! I'd say a custom order of comparable size and detail would be at least $600. The bigger I go, the harder they become, so the price would go up from there.
