Group and Family Portraiture

Jameson Morgan
by Elinore Schnurr

Elinore Schnurr, Portrait Artist, has made many paintings on location during her travels. Occasionally, a patron would request that he or she be included in the painting. This has led to many casual portraits on commission.

This oil on canvas shown is 12" x 16" in size. Elinore charges $2,500 for a portrait of comparable size.

Elinore Schnurr, Portrait Artist: "A portrait, to me, is a dialogue between the sitter and myself, the artist. I seek, step by step, to capture the sitter in visual terms, a sort of magical procedure whereby various aspects of the sitter reveal themselves and are captured as the portrait moves along.

"I came to make portraits through the discipline of figurative painting. My strength in portraiture lies in merging the painterly qualities of composition, mass, color and line with the ability to capture a likeness.

"Except for single head portraits, I prefer to work on location in the place of the subject's choosing, usually in the subject's home. I usually start with a photo session to determine the best pose and location; photographs are especially useful when dealing with groups. Color studies and life sittings may take place as the painting moves along. Live sittings depend on the client's time and access. I take the painting as far as I can to finish, share it with the client and make any adjustments that are necessary."
