Pet comissions

Each custom pet watercolor that I paint is a unique and personalized piece, with excellent quality materials. The technique is based on graphite pencil and watercolors. The paper I use is of a heavy weight 300gr, cold press with smooth grain to take care of the quality of the details, and free of acid (Arches) which prevents it from yellowing over time and losing color. The watercolors are Schmincke Horadam, professional quality and bright, long-lasting colors. For all my artworks I use quality paper, paint and pens which means your paintings should last a lifetime. However, in order to increase the longevity of your artwork it is very important that you keep it out of direct sunlight and if possible choose an acid-free mount when framing.

How to order your Artwork?

  • Step 1: Choose a Size that suits you.

Standard sizes are shown in the table below together with referencial prices. artwork_sizes

  • Step 2: It is all about quality.

Find some really good and clear photographs of your pet/person. This is really important as your final painting will be entirely based on this so make sure you choose a photo with the pose/stance you want in your painting. Clear photos with good lighting are key for me to create the painting to have a true likeness of your pet/person. For example, the perfect picture would be the pet looking front facing or slightly off centre and if you zoom into the photo all details such as facial features and fur should be sharp and clearly visible. This truly makes the difference between a good portrait and an AMAZING portrait.

  • Step 3: Contact me!

Message me to arrange a booking. 50% deposit will be required for booking via PayPal or bank transfer. Send me a message with the pet details, size and photos attached and I will give you a timeframe and potential date of completion of painting. After that,I will send you a preview of the sketch and any changes required can be discussed and made. Once you are happy, I will start the panting and I will send you 2 previews (you can also can ask for some changes in color in this stages).

  • Step 4: Payment

After the remaining payment is received, I will send you the painting directly. We accept Venmo, PayPal and wire transfers.
