Pet Portraits of Dogs, Cats and Horses in Oils and Pastels
Pet Portraits of Dogs, Cats and Horses in Oils and Pastels are the categories that represent most of my animal paintings but occasionally I am asked to paint other animals, which have included portraits of rabbits and birds. As it is for portrait paintings of people, pet portraits commissions are often for a birthday or a Christmas present and I have done many posthumous pet portraits including. Dog portraits, cat portraits and horse portraits, works of art that will last a lifetime.
My oil painting pet portraits of dogs and cats and my horse portraits as oil paintings are always painted onto the highest quality linen or cotton canvas supplied by the best manufacturers and suppliers of artist canvas; and the oil paints I use for my pet portraits and horse portraits paintings are made by the UK’s highest quality oil paint manufacturers. My pastel pet portraits are also done using only the highest quality pastels and pastel papers available
My pet portraits/animal portraits as oil paintings and pastel drawings are done in several formats, head and shoulders, half length, three quarters length, and full length depictions, and are often landscape in orientation to suit the subject, for instance a landscape format for painting a whole horse portrait. Pet portraits/animal portraits as oil paintings may only depict one animal or show several. The background setting of pet portraits/animal portraits may simply be plain, or detailed in background; but plain backgrounds are popular, whatever my clients want!
