Animal portraits

Bica – watercolour commission on board (50 x 70cms)

Memories of treasured companions created in rich watercolours:

What clients have said:
“The picture is incredible. You have caught the pair of them so completely. I cannot wait to give it to her…” “Thank you so very very much. I cannot express how totally thrilled I am.” “Both these studies are truly exceptional and now lift our spirits each time we see them and bring back so many happy memories for us.”

The commissioning process:
Rich watercolours are particularly effective for capturing animals’ shiny eyes, noses and glossy coats. I have painted to commission for twenty years and can guide you through the process which begins with a visit to view your dog in their own home, where they are happiest. I take observational notes and use photographs to plan layout and to edit lighting conditions. (Posthumous portraits are also possible from edited photographs.) After you have viewed a choice of photographic mock-ups of the painting and approved the planned layout, I take a 50% deposit to start your painting. A further viewing takes place nearer to completion when adjustments can be made.

£650 head and shoulders portrait unframed (A3 size/42 x 30cms). up to £950 for full body with background & details unframed (76 x 56cms/30×22 inches). Savings for multiple portraits at the same location.
