The following sizes and compositions (see table below) are a guide to the standard dimensions for traditional portrait paintings. The size of the subject’s head will be close to actual life size in these paintings, producing a portrait that will have good presence in a room and good detail when viewed close-up. The larger the painting, the larger the room it must be hung in. I also can paint larger than life scale on a larger canvas. (see the Faux Hawk Painting)
Please measure the wall space you have to narrow down a size.
Other compositions such as horizontal-format paintings are used for group portraits and reclining figures.
