Welcome to byDavid.com!
My name is David Alan Smith, and I paint what I call deLuxPortraits.
My definition of deLuxPortraits is this: de (latin; "from"); lux (latin; "light").
"The hand painted creation of a portrait from a photo or digital image file. The
process I use is intuitive and created by utilizing both digital light sources and material mediums with the final portrait varnished on stretch canvas."
My focus is to capture the true essence of the subject, which can be seen in the "inner light of each of us.
Brush stroke details reveal the amount of work in each painting. Many hours go into each portrait, so you can be assured of receiving a true masterpiece and one you will cherish for a lifetime.
Please take a look at the many deLuxPortraits showcased here on byDavid.com and if you would like to have my paint one for you just click here to begin.
Imagine the joy of receiving a masterfully hand-painted portrait in the mail!
