A portrait painting’s size is determined by its subject’s age, the artist’s style, and the expected viewing distance. When a painting is for a child, it can be as small as 2×3 inches. A portrait of a baby will typically be no larger than 12×14 inches. A head-and-shoulders portrait is usually done in an 18×24 inch frame, while a 3/4 length pose is perfect at 24×36 inches.
