I love doing pet portraits! In the past, I often worked in acrylics, sometimes watercolor, but my new passion is digital pet portraits. I love everything about the process – drawing and painting WITHOUT the mess! My goal with my portraits is to capture some of that “special delight” we each know so well about our own pets. Working from photographs, I can typically turn around a portrait in about 5-7 days. For dogs I typically create only the head as that is typically what people capture best in their photographs and is the most expressive part of the dog’s personality (other than body and tail wiggles – which I can’t capture!). For cats and smaller pets, depending on your photos, I will work with you to identify how much you want me to capture. Some cats, for example, have a favorite “pose” that can be important in capturing their personalities.
Please stay tuned as I rework my website to post more information on the services I will offer and how you can place an order.
