Original miniature painting with personalised gouache background.
A Pet Portrait is a wonderful reminder of that special bond you share with your pet, and my miniature fine art paintings give you the gift of being able to display your heart on your wall. The story of our love for animals is well known and I believe every connection is special and deserves to be celebrated!
In my Pet Portraits I focus on achieving a great technical likeness on a small scale. Specialising in miniature painting and using extremely fine brushwork, I strive to include all the little details and quirks which make your pet so recognisable.
Having worked on numerous different portraits in all their wonderful variety, as a part of your commission I offer a free consultation where I can advise on colour, composition, and recommend which image of your pet will make the best painting. I like to be as accommodating as I can, so if you have any specific requests or ideas I am more than happy to talk these through with you.
My Pet Portraits are beautiful and timeless pieces of artwork which will be treasured forever - ideal for Birthdays, Anniversaries and Christmases, or as a wonderfully thoughtful housewarming gift. If you have an occasion in mind but it’s some way off, why not favourite this product to remind you at a later date?
Created using Artist-quality Oil paint and Gouache. Includes the option for framing in a contemporary white box frame with mount.
After placing your order, send me as many images as you’d like via the ‘order enquiry’ option. Pictures should be well lit, clear, and of good quality - with no cropping or strong shadows. Taking the picture at your pet’s level also creates a good perspective to work from and ultimately a better end result. Whilst you might not currently have a photo of your pet in the location you’d like (or be able to take one), I often work from a combination of photos in order to incorporate favourite objects or places into your final composition. Some customers choose to provide me with their own photos for the background, or ask for general ones such as a summer meadow, a country field or natural beauty spots such as the Lake District.
Paintings typically take between 15 - 24 days to be completed, dried, framed and arrive at your door; after ordering I can provide you with an accurate estimate based on my current workload and your individual piece. Once nearly done, I will send you a photo of the painting so I can make any little alterations you feel are necessary - I always say to my customers that a piece isn’t finished until you’re truly happy with it.
