Cats and dogs are a popular choice but any pet can be immortalised on canvas. From horses and farm animals to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, reptiles and birds, like Pickle the cockatiel below! No animal is too weird and wonderful to be painted.
Portraits of dogs can be painted on box canvases or board using acrylic paints or on coloured paper using soft pastels.
Kate has been creating pet portraits to sell since 2002. She takes commissions for birthdays and Christmas gifts or for owners to remember their much loved animal. Dogs of all sorts of breeds, cats, horses, birds and other animals can be painted. Portraits of pets can be full body or head and shoulders with plain backgrounds or posing in their favourite spot. Collars and favourite toys can be included too. These paintings make excellent presents as they are unique and personal gifts.
If you would like a custom pet portrait, first assemble a collection of photos and choose your favourite pose. Next decide what size you would like and whether you want the portrait to be in coloured pastel or acrylic paint.
Backgrounds can be added in or left plain, so for instance, you may want them on a cushion or by the sea. For complex backgrounds please add 20%. Portraits can be assembled from different photographs and the higher the quality and more detailed the photograph, the higher the quality of the final painting. Photos can be sent via email, through the post as prints, or on CD. If possible photos should be taken outside in natural daylight or if would like to use a photograph taken by a professional photographer please ask for their permission. Names of pets, a collar or tag can be added to the picture for no extra cost.
