Dog Portrait Paintings from Photo of your Pet


Our pets have a special place in the family, and for those who want to capture their true personality and a special moment in your life with them, there is no better way than to commission a portrait painting of your car or dog or any animal commission for that matter.

The first question to ask yourself is, why would you want to commission a dog oil painting for example?

Just take a look at this example from a recent client Ryan and his beautiful dog Sylvie.


As you can see from this photo that the client sent in of his dog. While it’s a lovely photo of his dog, it is still just a photo of a moment. It does not capture the feeling, emotions or have the ability to use the magic of oil paint to create a new moment forever captured in oil that will last for decades.

A pet portrait is also an ideal gift for a loved one and is much more affordable than you might think. Take this example of Sylvie that you could commission from just £89 for a 8 x 10 inch dog oil painting from a photo on art paper painted by an expert award-winning artist with over 2,000 paintings under his belt

How do I commission a pet portrait painting from a photo?

It’s very simple.

Step 1> Just email us a photo or couple of photos of your favourite pet and let us know the size of painting you want, and your approximate budget.

Once we know your budget we can work out the kind of artist best suited to your project.

Step 2> It’s then time to think about what’s the right medium for you to choose for your painting. Read our useful guide on “How to choose the right medium for your painting”. You will then be given a few options by our team showing you some examples for you to choose from. These may be from some of our leading animal oil portrait painters or a couple of new artists we have found for you matching your brief.

As we run an art commission competition on every commission, you always end up with the best available artist matching your needs, not just who we have on our books.   

Step 3> Just make the payment to us securely and totally safe using PayPal offering you total peace of mind. We then send you the commission contract, this covers everything to make the process easy, safe and cover you against any problems. Our Code of Conduct also makes the process smooth in case any issues ever arise. 

You’ll then receive an initial sketch of your pet for your approval and feedback to the artist.
