    So but you do realise we can arrange things as painters, right, and that we can (and do) spend ages and ages and ages arranging portrait poses (say) so that what seem to just be incidentals (viz:...

    Camera distortion would struggle to do even that to a cello. My partner is a luthier and just laughed when she saw it. It is breathtakingly awful.

    Funnily enough I have pulled a version of this off twice, the latter resulting in my highest selling price so far. They were two portraits of people whom interested me enough for me to ask them to...

    I too have a couple of different rigs, depending on how big I want to work.

    My big setup is simply a paintbox, a canvas and an outdoor easel. The former and latter I strap to my back and the...

    Pro's: it's precision, repeatability, the fact that it standardises information about colour so exact colours can be easily described and thus mimicked by another.

    Only real con: It's speed?

    It certainly is the one of the costs of doing business.

    This incidentally is part of the reason for "standard sizes". By confining your canvas' to standard sizes you can at least re-use frames...

    I try to do exactly the opposite and make sure both top corners are touching the wall equally, otherwise the canvas/board/whatever inevitably warps.

    Then a varnish is not what you are looking for. Be it matt, gossy or anywhere in between it will unify the painting in terms of glossiness/mattness thus losing that contrast you worked so hard to...

    Elwell is on the money.

    If the glass touches any high spots on the picture they will appear darker where they touch, which is unsightly, and if the picture is less than say about six months dry...

    God no! Prices are sacrosanct! I want them trending up forever and should anyone negotiate better terms for themselves with me what price is settled on remains private.

    Watercolour blocks stop the need for stretching. That said, they cost a ridiculous amount of money for what they are.

    I would agree that if you are going after a likeness, accentuating features is not what you want to be aiming for. If you start exaggerating willy-nilly, a caricature - rather than a portrait - is...

    Pine wouldn't be too great a choice, as with all those fixtures and fittings, and the movement they entail, the soft wood will wear too quickly.

    A good hardword like beech would be perfect.
