Shadow is one of the sweetest labs I know. And her Dad makes specially balanced, nutritious dog food - so we did a barter deal!
He sent me 6 photos and I selected the best one for doing the portrait. When he agreed, I then did a pencil sketch on the actual canvas and he approved that.
Then I started to paint Shadow.
I've included each step in the pictures you see here, the photo, the sketch and the finished painting.
I paint in acrylics and can do any size desired and as many pets as well.
My style of painting clearly reflects the unique personality of your pet, at least that's what my clients tell me. It's never a generic animal, but a special keepsake for a lifetime.
Dimensions: The smallest portrait is 8-inch X 8-inch for a cost showing one pet is $150.00 Other sizes are available at additional charges; also you can have more than one pet in a portrait - each additional pet is $100.00 in additional charges.
