Let me capture the special character of your pet in a 5 x7" Custom Oil Pastel portrait. I create my paintings on Canson Mi-tientes pastel paper, using Sennelier Oil Pastels, and define details with Derwent Colorsoft pencils. Your custom portrait will be matted in an acid-free mat of your choice -black or cream, ready to go into a standard 8 x 10" frame (frame is not included).
You may choose a flower or 2 ,a special plant, or even a toy to place next to your dog or cat in the portrait.
I am a self-taught pastel artist who fell in love with drawing the moment I picked up that first crayon. I am passionate about both art and animals. Dogs, cats and nature have always been an integral part of my life and my artwork. I draw realistic animals in all types of natural backgrounds, some real & some touching on the surreal. My goal is to capture the dog or cats face, character and emotion, while giving the viewer a tiny glimpse of the animals' perspective through my paintings.
Any questions, please ask!
