Pop Art Portrait Tips

Choosing the best photo
Examples of good photos

Here are some tips for choosing a good portrait to turn into a painting!

  • Single portrait (only one person!)

  • Face forward

  • Has some shadows/contrast

  • Try to avoid teeth and hands- those can be tricky to paint!

  • Clear Image

Once you've found the perfect photo, email it to nuveen@artswhitelake.org. If you're not sure if your photo is a good choice, still email it to nuveen@artswhitelake.org and we will let you know if it's a good option!
