"I would rather see a portrait of a dog that I know than all the allegorical
paintings in the world." -- Samuel Johnson
Ink & Watercolor Dog Portrait
"YOU know better than anyone else how much your dogs' personalities contribute to their special beauty. As a professional artist specializing in animal portraits, I take pride in creating artwork that captures not just the physical likeness of your pet, but also the character that portrays his or her true soul." -- Raven
My dog portraits, which are based on your clear, detailed photographs, are drawn in permanent ink on top-quality watercolor paper at a finished size of approximately 8" x 10" or larger. The one-of-a-kind original portrait is then given a light watercolor wash for a warmer, more realistic look. Portraits come ready to be matted and framed by your framing professional to suit you own individual taste and decor. If you wish, I can also make your dog portrait into mugs, note cards, or make you additional prints for family and friends. I do portraits of dogs, cats, horses and many other animals. I can also do composite portraits of multiple animals and also do special backgrounds and small alternate pose insets on your dog portrait.
