Pet portraits are created using your photos for reference and I offer them in a choice of pastels, coloured pencil, watercolours or acrylics. Standard pet portraits are unframed and depict the animal's head and shoulders on a plain or mottled background. Requests for something more bespoke can be quoted for. Unframed portraits are supplied mounted within a soft white conservation mount and backing board (canvases are unmounted and unframed). Prices for unframed portraits in each medium are listed on the prices page.
For the complete package, I can also take care of framing for you. Follow this link for more information and to view frame styles and prices.
Before booking a commission, you'll want to think about your budget and the style of portrait you'd prefer. You'll also need to find good photos for me to use as reference. Please take time to read the important info about photos.
Portraits take up to a week to complete and there is a planning stage up-front to sort out all the finer details. I can rarely start immediately, so if your portrait is a gift, I recommend booking at least four weeks in advance and, ideally, before September for Christmas gifts. If you do have an urgent order, contact me asap with the date you need it by and I'll let you know if I can fit it in.
