Recently, I had the pleasure of making an 8 x 10 canvas come to life for a special owner.
This is the process from beginning to end for a pet portrait or two.....
great little subject matter's a labradoodle and a fiery red "Teddy"...
so cute and such a fun treat for me to work on.
A great piece of nostalgia for some (pet memoriam portraits seem to be in high demand these days), or to pay tribute to your favorite four legged friend or the perfect gift for that someone who has everything.
Gift certificates are available as well.
Enjoy the process.....
The beginning stages, the drawing and sketching of the facial features.
Brush, water and disposable paint pail applied to the thick edged and wooden edged canvas.
A little more color and composition are being added.
The picture for color and perspective are being referred to an original photo of the owners.
This particular style is realistic, but many more pop art or even Warhol types have been popular too!
More of the process...a little more background and for ground color.
The facial image is beginning to come alive in a two dimensional process, we are getting there.
In the process, and approaching the final stages.
And finished with a protective UV sealer that will protect and prevent UV discoloration over the years of hanging or viewing pleasure.
And then the labradoodle.......
Finished as well.
Another fun project, all order are usually worked on and finished from an owners favorite photo of their pet.I can work from an emailed picture and most portraits depending on how backed up I am are finished between 4-6 weeks if not sooner.
Gift certificates are also popular and are a great gift as well.
