Turn your Old Black & White Photos into Treasured Oil Paintings!

There are significant moments in everyone’s life that deserve to be captured, and Fabulous Masterpieces is passionate about immortalising them in oils. Our portraits allow emotions, personalities and sentiments to shine through – creating memories that will last a lifetime.

The process of commissioning an ancestral portrait couldn’t be simpler.  Just send us a photograph or two of the subjects you would like to have painted, (either by email or post) and using that to work from, one of our professional portrait artists will hand paint you a beautiful oil portrait onto canvas.  We’re used to working with very old black and white photographs and have painted a plethora of beautiful ancestral portraits for people and their families to treasure. These ancestral portraits are usually then passed down to future generations.
