Commission a Portrait of your Pet - Cat, Dog, Horse or a Person Portrait from Photo
The portrait of your pet will be painted in oils on canvas board ( if you would prefer stretched
canvas then this will be no problem ).

All you have to do is either mail or email me a good clear photo of your pet and in under 4 weeks
time I will send you the finished painting . What's more you will be emailed a photo of the painting
at every stage so you can watch its progress and finally okay the finished piece. And I am so sure
you will like my work I can offer a full money back guarantee.

If you are not sure about the suitability of your photo or if you have any questions at all then
please email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Please note payment isn't needed until after the painting is actually finished and you are
completely happy with the result.


All of my painting and portraits are original paintings, painted in oil paint on canvas and they make
an excellent gift for either a birthday or Christmas present.

Nothing can beat the look of a portrait painted in oils on canvas. A portrait of your pet dog or cat
can be the perfect centre piece for your living room. Many of my clients have commissioned
several paintings from me and repeat customers often outnumber new customers.

For small paintings no bigger than 12 x 16 inches I normally advise simple plain backgrounds so not
to draw attention away from the main subject of the portrait but for larger full body paintings (20
x 16 inches and above) I often do outdoor backgrounds of grass sky etc..

My paintings normally take around 3 to 4 weeks to finish - this is due to the drying times of the oil
paint but if need be I can sometimes speed up the painting process so that you could have the
painting even sooner.

After we have decided how the painting will look, the background and the composition etc., I
normally start with a detailed sketch which I will email you before I start the actual painting.
When the painting is finished I will email you a photo so that you can check that the painting is
exactly how you want it and has turned out the way you expected. Payment isn't expected until
this point, when you are completely happy with the results.
