A personalised pet portrait of your much loved dog, cat or other animal, with a distinctive geometric background.
Commission a pet portrait and your beloved pet will be hand drawn from your photograph and coloured using watercolour, ink and pencil, giving the picture my usual delicate but detailed style in soft muted tones.
The picture's background will be be made of a repeating geometric pattern in either original matte grey paint or metallic bronze or silver, giving the picture a distinctive and contemporary style.
The muted colour palette of my illustrations means they look great in a simple frame in any room. So why not treat yourself or a loved one to a picture of your furry (or scaly, or feathered) friend. A unique pet portrait commission makes a lovely gift.
If you would like to see what your portrait looks like after the drawing stage, before any colour has been added, please select the 'digital proof' option. Please note, this will be the only point at which changes can be made to the picture.
Please allow up to two weeks for your portrait, however they are usually ready much quicker than this.
How to upload your images: Being a personalised painting I require at least one good quality photograph from you. You can upload your photo once you have placed your order. Simply log onto your notonthehighstreet account, select "my orders" and click "contact seller". From there, you can upload your photo by using the "browse" button.
Remember I have never met your pet so I will need a nice clear photo that accurately shows his colours but he needn't be looking at the camera on his best behaviour, generally the photos where he's looking away or goofing around make a more interesting and natural portrait.
If you would like an additional copy of your portrait, to share with a family member for example, please select this option from the menu. You will receive an additional print along with your painting, produced with archival inks and paper. The print will be produced to the same scale as the original on archival paper with archival inks.
I use artist quality watercolours, inks and pencil with either gouache or acrylic paint on thick acid-free paper to ensure your portrait will not fade with time.
