I've asked the same question in the Chiang Mai section.
Are there likely to be any artists that could draw a picture of my dog from a photo?

Hi. I had my children drawn by an artisit in the grounds of Horizon Beach Resort( Next to Holiday Inn)
He took the photo and did the drawing from that. It was fantastic. We were very happy with it. The cost varies. Apart from him I think there are many others. good luck. Jane
There's also a couple of artists at the Holiday Inn that draw from photos. I think from memory they can be done in either charcoal or colour.
Last year we had 2 large (23" x 20") paintings done of our family from photos.
They were done by the Best Art Gallery at the top end of Prachanukhro Road (other end to the beach). Quite easy walk from beach/Holiday Inn area. Left 2 photos with the really nice young lady after negotiating and agreeing to 7500Bt (about $A130 each) – left $AU50 note as deposit (she asked for 2000Bt). Paintings done by her brother.
Paintings were very good, took about 8 days (I'm sure could be done quicker - we were in no hurry) and you can check before pickup and request alterations and changes.
You can view these paintings on http://picasaweb.google.com/peturner45
thankyou all very much for your help, it's much appreciated.
