I work in Oils on canvas or canvas board. If you are intending of getting your portrait framed, I would suggest to go with canvas board.
Different and larger sizes are available, just get in contact.
All portraits will be painted with a coloured background chosen by you to match your pets personality or suggested by myself.
I also offer pet portraits in pencil or
in acrylic paint. These are at different prices. If you wish for a pet portrait

Example: This pet portrait commission is A2 in size and a close up.
The better the reference photo, the better the finished painting- it really is that simple!
Here are some tips to help you capture the best possible representation of your pet:
• Please ensure the photos are of a good quality - I understand that some of the best photos are from phones, as they often capture a wonderful moment, however it is very difficult to draw and paint in the right colours from a dark or blurry photo! The clearer the photo, the better the portrait.
• Try to photograph your pet in natural daylight, but avoid direct sunlight as this casts shadows and washes out detail. Ideally photograph your pet outside, or facing a window.
•The eyes are really important in all portraits, so make sure they are open and looking into the camera - holding up a treat to get their attention should always work!
• The best photos to paint from are usually taken reasonably close to your pets face and chest, at their height and in good light that illuminates their features. Taking the photo at your pets level is important as it creates the best photos, lie on the floor or possibly put them on a higher level.
