When choosing a portrait artist – there are a host of factors to consider. A portrait after all conveys a host of different emotions to a photograph. A photo tends to capture the moment as seen through the eyes of the viewer whereas a beautifully painted portrait – you get to see the sitter through the eyes of the artist, where the artist has conveyed all the amazing attributes and beauty of the sitter depicting their ‘higher self’. As one of the most successful portrait artists in the UK and now worldwide, Hazel is much in demand for both oil paintings and charcoal drawings.
Hazel’s ability is to not only capture the likeness of the sitter in her portraits, but also the incredible person that is behind the likeness. Everyone has a story, a life well lived and full of adventure and experiences that often get hidden away because we don’t want to stand out from the crowd. Hazel helps bring that part of them out on to the canvas, much to the delight of the sitter and everyone who get’s to enjoy the portrait for many years to come.
The portrait is a lasting legacy of the sitters life celebrating a how wonderful they are and can serve as a comforting reminder whenever they are apart from you. The portrait maybe a gift to say to someone how much you love them or admire them, testament to life well lived, where that person has contributed to the world or to the local community or to their family and friends. To be painted by a portrait artist of Hazel’s ability speaks volumes of the esteem that the sitter is held in by their family and peers.
Some clients commission a portrait of themselves by way of recognition of all that they have achieved and quite right too! Sometimes in life all we receive is criticism and negativity, when what we deserve is praise and respect for the efforts that we have put in to better ourselves and the people that we come into contact with. Commissioning Hazel to paint you in your finest hour is a fantastic way of reminding you and the world that not only did your life matter, but that it meant so much to so many people.
