A custom pet portrait is a fun and special piece of art to hang in your home or a thoughtful gift for anyone who loves their pets.
I paint in watercolour and include lots of great detail, I try to find a balance between realism and the pets individual personality in my paintings.
Pet Portrait FAQ
What do you need to paint my pet?
I usually work from your photos. Sending more than one photo is helpful, especially if they are less than perfect.
What if I don't have any good pictures of my pet? What if they are a little blurry?
I can sometimes work from your photos even if they are slightly blurry. Sending multiple photos and any helpful notes (e.g. eye color or fur color) is especially helpful in these cases. However, please note the more detail there is in the photograph the more detail I can include within your pets portrait.
I'm not sure which image would be best for my pet portrait.
Send me your photos I am happy to give advice on what I can do and what I think would make a nice portrait.
