Getting any pet to sit still whilst having their portrait painted for hours would be challenging to say the least! This is why Dee paints from photographs that you send through of your pet.
When you are ready to place your order for a custom pet portrait you will be required to upload up to 3 high resolution photos of your pet. The photos will need to be front on, torso up, in natural light, with a clear indication of your pets eyes, (after all, the eyes are the window to the soul!)
Keep in mind, the better the photo the better the portrait! If you can't decide on the image to use and have a few goodies, send them all through and Dee can offer her advice.
Each original pet portrait will be painted in water colour on a smooth 300gsm Arches natural coloured paper.
Dee offers custom pet portraits in two sizes:
• A4 (210mm W x 297mm H)
• A3 (297mm W x 420mm H)
Two pets can be accommodated into A3 (landscape orientation – 420mm W x 297mm H)
The maximum number of pets Dee can fit in an A4 size pet portrait is 1.
The maximum number of pets Dee can fit in an A3 size pet portrait is 2. The A3 pet portraits with 2 pets will be painted in a landscape orientation.
Custom pet portraits can take up to 12 weeks to complete.
This can vary depending on size and work involved.
Gifting a pet portrait is such a great idea! What a personal gift!
If you have a specific date you need your portrait by please contact Dee prior to purchasing and she will let you know if this is possible.
No. All portraits will be signed and numbered in pencil and will be mailed in a protective sleeve along with a cardboard backing, in a sturdy document mailer.
Absolutely! What a nice way to share your pet portrait with other family members.
Dee can organise a professional scan and high-quality Giclee print of your original portrait in either A4 or A3 sizes. If you are interested in this option contact Dee and she will provide you with a quote.
