A Masterpiece Oil begins life as a photographic capture similar to our Signature Color portraits but thats just the beginning.
The first step on the journey to a Masterpiece Oil commission is very similar to our Signature Color portraits; a consultation and photographic session where candidate images are created for you to make your selection for your painting.
Once the image is selected for the final portrait, Hayward transforms the photographic image into a pigment underpainting on 100% archival artist’s cotton canvas.
The final step which really sets this work of art apart is meticulously hand painting the entire work in artists oils.
The result is the modern equivalent of a time honored renaissance painted oil portrait, and will instantly become a family heirloom to be handed down for generations.
A Masterpiece Oil Portrait transcends and transforms great photography into a fine oil painting. The brush and oils on the canvas add a level of depth, dimension and artistry which demonstrate that you possess an investment worthy work of fine art for your home.

Masterpiece Oil Portraits are created by commission only; each step is actually performed by Hayward - he is the artist for your portrait from camera to brush. Because each painting is completely unique and demand quite a bit of time to complete, there are only a limited number available each year.
