Have you thought about turning your photos into beautiful oil paintings? In Bo Gu Yi Yuan Antique Market, I found a studio offering this service. The studio name is Cai Ze Ren Sheng, which means "colorful life".
Upon entering the studio, I saw an artist painting a Tibetan girl. To the side was a photo of her. I was touched by the girl's facial expressions, depicted in detail by the painting. Her colorful Tibetan costume looked even more vivid in the painting than in the photo.
The artist got up, and introduced himself to me as the owner, Wang Zeyuan. Mr. Wang then explained to me about his paintings. They are typically 3.5 ft by 2.3 ft. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to finish a piece. However, family photos will take a bit longer.
Price is RMB 3000 for the default sized painting. Customers can ask for a smaller piece for a cheaper price.
Mr. Wang is also good at drawing the landscape of nature. Some of his oil paintings are hung on the wall, for RMB 1000 each. If you like a particular scenery, send him your postcard and to have a fine oil painting done in its likeness.
Mr. Wang occasionally receives overseas customers. Communication is not a problem, nor is overseas shipment.
