Opie style

Create a minimalist julian opie style portrait

To create a Julian Opie style portrait we take the portrait back to the bare essentials of eyes, mouth, hair and shape of the face but still create a recognisable portrait.. Julian Opie pioneered this approach now you can apply it to your family. Our digital artist will rebuild your photograph using simple shapes and solid colours on a graphics tablet .

The beauty of this style is that as long as the features on the face are sharp and visible we can create this  from any size of photograph and it can then be blown up as large as you like. This style works well with people ,including  children. Family groups  on one canvas or each on a separate canvas are also popular

How it Works

photo to art starts with a camera at scarlet ibis art
Photo?

Large sharp photos with plenty of pixels work best.  Not sure if a photo will work ? Please upload the photo to us and ask our advice.

Style

There are 16 styles to choose from. If you need help choosing a style please upload your photo to us and we will get back to you with some suggestions

Medium

Our canvas stretchers have two depths. Choose shallow if you want to frame it, deeper to hang it straight on the wall.

We normally use lightly textured watercolour paper for most styles. Black and white or sepia often look better on satin or gloss paper.

Format

Usually, photos are portrait or panorama shaped. If you want to change the format crop it before you send it. Otherwise, tell us and we will do it for you.

we check your photo is ok for photo to art
Size

As a rough guide every 10 inches (25 cms) needs 1000 pixels. To find out how big your picture will print please upload it to us before you place an order.

Edging

For canvas prints you can wrap the picture around the sides Alternatively,  you can have a black, white or coloured edge.

For paper prints have a white border if you want to mount and frame.
