You pet it, I paint it! Custom Pet Portraits are one of my most popular items, and are an absolute hit as gifts. All portraits are intricately hand-painted with watercolor, and detailed in gouache.
With this listing you will receive a physical original painting of your one-of-a- kind fine hand-painted artwork.
Portraits are painted onto acid-free, archival watercolor paper.
How it works:
1. Choose the size you'd like, and place your order.
2. Send me an email with the following information
- A photo (or a few) of the pet. I suggest more than one photo, and we will work together to decide which will be executed best as a painting.
- Date needed by, if applicable.
- Pet's name, if you'd like it written on the portrait (optional)
- Any other specific details or requests you may have
If you would like two or more pets in your painting, please go to this listing and add additional pets as add-ons*
3. I will get back to you with an estimated delivery date, and work with you to make decisions about layout, composition, and other details.
(please note custom pet portraits usually take 3 weeks to a month for completion)
4. I will send you a photo of my first sketch, before proceeding to painting
5. I will send a photo of the painting before mailing. (please note: any minor adjustments are ok and not subject to additional charge. Any major changes may be subject to an additional charge).
If you would like to add on custom stationary with the image of your dog portrait, see this listing!
If you would like to add additional prints of your custom artwork, see this listing.
All custom portraits are packed by hand and shipped carefully in an acid-free protective sleeve, with stiff backing board, in a rigid mailer.
Please feel free to share your portrait on social media, but please tag and credit my work :)
Terms and Conditions:
- Minor adjustments after initial sketch and after photo of final painting are acceptable and included in price, as long as they do not stretch far from what we discussed initially or require a re-do. Any major changes (especially at final phase) are subject to additional cost, which will be discussed before proceeding further.
- Each painting is custom and one of a kind, and have a no return policy.
- I retain copyright and ownership of all artwork. If you would like to reproduce your image- for example, print onto a mug or making copies for yourself- a legal contract will need to be signed for a licensing payment. Please note, I do offer additional prints on this site, and you are encouraged to order as many additional prints as you'd like of your custom artwork!
