Dog Portrait Commissions
Commission an oil painting of your Dog.
2017 Prices for custom oil portraits are available here.
I am very happy to paint larger format pieces - please ask!
Prices below are a guide to single subject portraits. I recommend choosing 40 x 50 cm or larger if you want to include two or more dogs. I work from photos- If you are local, I can take the initial photographs myself. Some of my recent paintings can be seen at our shop in Ashby de la Zouch, I am usually available in the afternoons to show and discuss my work.
Please send your photographs and requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can contact me to discuss your painting and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The best photographs for me to use as reference material, are well lit, close up and clear, with the eyes being particularly important. Send as many photos as you like! If you need any help or tips in taking the right photos to make a great picture, I can give you some handy tips. Pet portraits are painted on stretched premium cotton canvas, so you have the option of hanging with or without a frame. 50% deposit secures your place on my studio list. The time it will take me to complete your dog's portrait will depend largely on how many portraits are currently in progress, however it would normally take me around 4 - 6 weeks to complete an oil portrait.
