Oil Pet Portraits
I use only the best quality materials for my paintings and you can be assured that you will be receiving a professional portrait, hand painted by me, based on your photos. No size is too big, so if you have a specific size portrait you wish to commission then please do get in touch for a quote.
I am also pleased to offer a framing service, as well as engraved nameplates if you would like to receive your portrait ready to hang.
After viewing your photos, we will choose one or two suitable poses for a portrait. I am able to use several photos to obtain the perfect pose and accurate likeness so please do not worry if you feel that you don't have the perfect reference photograph. When I feel I have sufficient reference material I will put together a sketch or a digital mock-up for your consideration. Finally I will put together an agreement email detailing all aspects of the project (size/cost/timescales etc.) for your approval, with a 50% deposit requested as a firm commitment to the project: painting will then begin from my studio. As a guide, an oil portrait can take around 2 months, but if you are working to a specific deadline I will be happy to discuss a timeframe.
My most popular sizes for one head portrait on a plain background are listed below along with the cost. Extra charges will apply for framing, engraved nameplate, postage, and secure packaging to your address.
12" x 10" = £1,000
14" x 11"= £1,250
16" x 12" = £1,400
18" x 14" = £1,600
20" x 16" = £1,750
24" x 18" = £2,250
30" x 20" = £2,750
40" x 30" = £3,250
If you would like a scenic background, this will incur an extra charge, depending on the complexity, which we can discuss.
If you would like a portrait of more than one animal, please contact me for a quote.
