I will capture the life and character of your much loved pet with a life like oil portrait painting. Portraits are painted from photographs (usually provided by yourself but I will take photos for people who live locally). Portraits are painted in a direct style, which gives life and character to the finished portrait. Any animal from dogs, cats, horses, rabbits to fish or reptiles can be painted (no subject too large or too small). Take a look at the pet portrait gallery to see examples of previous commissions.
I can work from most photos, but the better the photo the better the results. The best photos to use are taken at eye level to your pet (not stood above looking down), also close up filling most of the frame (or closer i.e. a head shot). If the photo is good but does not quite show an important feature of your pet then include a note so that adjustments can be made. If in doubt send the photos and we can discuss them. Any photos sent will be carefully looked after and returned, although these days most people send digital photos.
I am so confident that you will be delighted with the finished portrait that there is a no quibble satisfaction guarantee. The portrait painting can be returned for a full refund if it fails to meet your expectations.
Got them today, they are AMAZING!! I cant say enough, there's so many shades showing through, hints of blue and purple in Mya's coat, reds in Kelly's, blues and silver almost in Chip's, you're incredibly talented, thank you so so much. Seriously, thank you, you've been great and I couldn't love the paintings any more :D

Andrew has done a brilliant painting of our Cockapoo Dan- he has really captured the essence of him. He sent us photos of the painting as it progressed -so from the charcoal image to the finished painting which was both interesting and fascinating to see. It looks so like the original photograph of Dan and we are thrilled with the painting. He is a very talented artist and we would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a portrait of their pooch.
