Pet Portraits

Animals are just like humans in that their eyes are the gateway to their souls. As a painter, if you don’t get the eyes right, then you don’t capture their souls and the true personality of the pet.

Unlike people, pets are not as accommodating in terms of staying still, so these are painted from photos. These can either be supplied by you or I can take them (at an additional cost).

I normally use acrylic to paint these but I can also paint in watercolour and oil too. You can also have the choice of the picture being painted on acrylic paper, watercolour paper, board, or canvas. If using paper, I usually cut the mounts using high grade Daler mount board (white, antique white or light parchment) using standard picture frame sizes. If you want a canvas, this is not a problem and normally customers like those which are about an inch deep.

Prices are dependent on the complexity of the picture and whether it is paper or canvas. As a rough guide, a 22′ x 18′ inch (approx 55 x 45cm) acrylic painting on canvas is £400. If you do not like the picture, you do not pay.

Pictures can be posted if required although postage and packing is extra but will be charged at cost only. If you want a frame, I can organise this as an extra cost.
