Artist Dog Portraits You Will Love
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
I create professional paintings and drawings of dog portraits from your favourite photos in the UK
portraits in oil, pastel and pencil
if you are looking for realistic dog artist portraits of your pets then i should be able to help you
as i have been working from clients photos producing quality artwork for many years now.
my artist portraits are created by hand using quality traditional art materials from some of the worlds top manufactures . Using quality materials helps ensure that my portraits will last over a long period and give consistent quality results that you wont get from inferior products.
what do you need for a great portrait ?
For best results and a great dog portrait for you it is important you have a good clear closeup photo of your favourite pal, you do not want your photo to be fuzzy or out of focus etc as I need to see the details in your image clearly to draw or paint properly .
Even a slightly fuzzy image takes longer and is usually not as successful and can produce a poor image and the rule of thumb to remember is the better the photograph the more successful the artwork you will get.
Here are the types of artwork I can do for you
pastel chalk drawing
b&w pencil drawing
artist oil paintings painted on stretched cotton canvas by hand using latest fast drying winsor and newton oil colours, this is a style preferred by many and you can frame or leave unframed and does not need glass for protection
this style is the least known and is drawn on special pastel paper or board can produce a soft velvety textured chalky surface which is ideal for soft blends in skin, fur etc.
comes complete with backing board and a card surround mount.
pastel dog portraits need to be framed under glass for protection from damp, smudging etc.
my pencil portraits are drawn on a white textured art paper by matt black conte art pencil
which can produce very dark black areas when needed. This style also comes with backing board and card surround mount ready to frame under glass for protection
