Ah, art. What a beautiful and romantic world. It seems love and art are undeniably intertwined–great works being inspired by famed and ordinary loves across centuries, and art being a way to court and impress admirers and invoke feelings of love and belonging.

What could be a more romantic and special gift for your significant other than a piece of artwork, commissioned with the apple of one's eye in mind?

Well...of course, we think art is pretty romantic! Paintru is proud to have celebrated many significant moments shared between partners–from engagements to weddings, first homes to incredible travels around the world.

Paintru Tip: Landscapes are often the easiest option for emulating the style of one of the great classic artists (or more modern styles). If opting for an artistic style of portraiture, we often have the portraiture done in a more realistic way atop an artistically-styled background

4. Paintru Portraiture

You don't need to be famous or wealthy to have your very own portrait commissioned. Gone are the days that the only members of society to be painted were the royals or lucky happenstance muses of an artist.

Simply upload your photo and have it turned into a hand-painted masterpiece, in any style!

Paintru tip: If you are looking for realistic portraiture, the best option is oil. We quite often paint realistic and photorealistic portraiture atop an artistic background. However, watercolor portraits can be stunning if you like a more artistic style!

Paintru tip: Want to get creative? Try watercolor portraits! These are more stylized than oil and you can still make many custom style requests to create something more realistic, or more abstract per your choosing.

When we say our artists can paint anything, they can!

Your significant other's favorite album? We can have that painted. Their crowning moment as a sports star? Yes, that too! Custom artwork is an incredible way to commemorate the things that matter most in life.

For many, the wedding day is one of the most beautiful, meaningful steps in the journey of togetherness. Where photo prints often fall short of displaying these important and beautiful moments, custom hand-painted artwork displays them in truly a unique way.
