Pet Portrait Painting

Because our pets mean the world to us.

As a pet owner I know how much we love our furry companions.  They are our comrades, our best friends and our family.  That is why I pour so much love into every painting of your pets, carefully capturing every detail, their personality, moments you share together, and every hair and whisker on their heads.

How does it work?

1. Decide the style and material you would like for your portrait.

As a multi-media trained artist I have the opportunity to offer you portraits in a variety of styles that are done in a variety of ways.  The medium chosen tends to dictate the style. Below are photos in each style.  The price, time it takes to do the work, and final result depend on the medium and style.

2. Easy Order and secure payment

Under the photo examples of each style below you will find a link to an easy order form with the prices and options for each style as well as secure payment.  You can pay with paypal or credit card.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out.

3. Take a photo of your pet or sneakily grab one from your friends facebook

Email  me the photo you would like to use at willowofraincity@gmail.com, higher resolution images yield best results. and tell me about your pet's personality and why you would love a portrait: is it a gift? A memorial? Part of a series?  The more information you can give me for your painting the better.

Portraits are mailed out or hand delivered ready to be enjoyed by you and your entire family.

Traditional Media

Acrylic, Oil or Watercolor on Canvas or Watercolor paper

Tradional media paintings in acrylic, oil or watercolor are the real deal.   They are painted with the highest quality paints and using the smallest brushes I capture every hair on your pets head.  These beautiful portraits have an incredible finish, complete with paint texture. The acrylic works are UV protecting varnish ensuring that your piece will last a life time.

Paintings in acrylic or oil are completed on stretched canvas with a painted border and are ready to hang.

Watercolors are painted on 140lb archival watercolor paper

An 8x10 takes around 8 -16 hours to complete depending on the complexity of the image so expect a higher price tag and wait time for your final painting.  As such please factor in the time needed to create the work if this is a gift and time sensitive.
