This is a one-of-a-kind portrait of your pet or favourite animal painted in black and white with an accent colour of your choice! This listing is for one subject in the portrait. Please reach out if you would like a portrait of multiple subjects together.
I accept commissions of all species including cats, dogs, rats, hamsters, birds, snakes, and more!
HOW TO ORDER:
Either before or after ordering, use my contact form to send your reference photos. Hosting your images on Google Drive or Dropbox is usually best for sending high resolution photos.
The best reference photos have high contrast so your pet looks shiny. Higher resolution photos also produce better results. If you’re not sure what to look for, feel free to send me several photos or a link to an album and we can choose a good photo together.
(I understand if this is a memorial piece and you only have low quality photos. In that case, please contact me BEFORE checking out so I can tell you if I can work from your references.)
I’ll send you a sketch once I begin working on your portrait. When you’ve approved the sketch, I’ll start painting and send you the finished piece!
Turn around time is usually 1-2 weeks, but I may take a little longer. I will let you know before I begin your portrait and keep you updated along the way.
Your pet portrait will be wrapped in a cellophane sleeve with rigid backing to prevent bending. It will be shipped in a rigid mailer via Canada Post standard mail. Tracking and insurance are included.
I will also send you a high resolution scan of your pet portrait, so you can make prints or other items for personal use.
All portraits are made on professional quality watercolour paper with Daniel Smith professional grade paints. This ensures your portrait will last for generations!
