Original Pet Portraits in Watercolour
A portrait of a favourite pet can make a special and lasting gift. In my animal portraits I try to capture the individual character of the subject to create a unique portrait in watercolour.
The Commissioning Process
In these days of internet and email it is now possible for me to create and send original paintings worldwide.
In order to begin your painting I like you to provide me with several good quality photos of your pet, which can be sent to me by email.
I then start sketching out some ideas, regarding subject and background. You may wish for a close-up of your pet, i.e. the face, or you may prefer a painting of the whole animal placed in its own environment.
once we've established what you require, I can then begin work on a detailed, full size drawing.
At this stage I aim to get a likeness and capture the character. Once this working rough drawing has been approved by you, I can then go ahead with the final painting.
My prices are based on £1 per square inch of the final image area.
I can provide frames for paintings commissioned within my local area (Paignton, Devon). However, paintings sent by post will have to be unframed.
1. 8x10 inches - £80 (framed - £110)
2. 10x14 inches - £140 (framed - £190)
3. 13x20 inches - £260 (framed - £350)
