PET PORTRAITS 5" x 7"
Simply contact me your photos and background color preference as well as choice of vertical or horizontal.
High resolution photos that are well lit allow for more accurate depiction of the pet(s). Avoid using flash if able.
I can do minor adjustments to your painting- such as leaving out a collar or adding in their favorite toy.
With all of my paintings I start by cropping the picture in a way that best fits the square canvas size (usually from the chest up but you can request a full body painting as well). Canvases are double primed prior to painting to allow for a smother painting surface.
Paintings are finished with a high quality matte varnish that protects them from UV rays (if hanging where painting would get direct sunlight), yellowing over time, and waterproofs them further for light cleaning over time. You can also choose to have a gloss varnish or gloss just over the pet.
I take tremendous pride in each painting I do and take special care of every single one as if it were my own pet.
