I’ve been painting pet portraits for six years now, they were my introduction into commissioned art and therefore have a special place in my heart.
I work in a range of media, but I believe the most vibrant and effective pet portraits are those completed in oil.
The painting will be tailored to the space you would like to hang it, have a light pink wall? Brilliant, a sky blue painted depth of the painting will look great. Pets are incredibly personal and little details can really make a painting special, a favourite toy, collar, food, really finishes a painting. In Sandy the cockapoo’s case, I took inspiration from a rug in one of her favourite rooms to create this repeated diamond pattern background.
I find the best way to make a painting that someone is proud to call theirs is to chat a lot. Before agreeing anything, I like to talk through ideas and have found this always guarantees a great finished piece.
