Pet Portrait Commissions
I paint expressive pet portraits in oil and watercolor, focusing on your pet's distinctive qualities and personality as it appears in their eyes and expression. My painting style combines traditional realism with expressionistic, visible brushwork. For oil paintings, I start with a bright, warm underpainting and a simplified background of one to two colors. For watercolor paintings, I will either leave the background white, or a background of 1-2 colors may be chosen. Please let me know in the message section what your background preference is.
To commission a custom animal portrait, please use the form below. In the message section, describe your desired portrait and attach your favorite image. Please be sure to select either your choice of either a watercolor or oil painting. When we've established your portrait details and payment is received via PayPal, your oil or watercolor portrait will be completed and shipped within three to four weeks to allow time for the painting and varnish to cure.
I look forward to working with you!
