I love to paint dogs and cats. I seem to have a natural ability to capture their spirit, not just the likeness, of your lovely pet. My original portraits have brought tears of joy to their owners. They also make perfect birthday and holiday presents.
All of my portraits are done in watercolor. I use top quality materials for conservation and professional grade paints and paper.
Each painting is matted and comes with a backing board, placed in a glassine envelope and tied with a fabric bow.
The completed sizes (matted) are 12 x 12 inches square or 11x14 inches, depending on the composition.
If you're interested in commissioning a pet portrait for yourself, a friend or family member, contact me and send a photograph of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current turnaround time is one week. The price for a single portrait is $175.00.
Shipping and handling are not included in the purchase price of your painting. I ship via USPS Priority Mail within the United States. You can read more about this by clicking here.
Reference photos :
1. Take the photo outside on a sunny day with the sun to your side or behind you.
2. make sure the sun does not wash out the pet's features
3. Take a close-up so I can see their face.
4.Get down to the pet's level for a forward view
5. Send a few images if possible.
You only purchase the painting if you are happy with the result.
