 Additional information

  • Pastels  require framing under glass with a mount.

  • I can send larger sizes unframed and you can take them to your local reputable framer who will custom frame it for you.

  • Framing can be arranged (I will only post sizes 8 x 10" and 10 x 12" due to glass)

  • You are welcome to collect larger sizes from Clacton-On-Sea or Witham Art and Framing Centre.

  • Sizes may differ slightly according the subject's pose - ie 10 x 12" may need a square format taking it to 11 x 11" ; A portrait with three subjects may require a longer thinner format - ie 14 x 16"  may need to become 12 x 18". Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries and to discuss your requirements further .

  • I work in pastels because I love the effect I get from them, the way I can mix and layer the colours, no drying time and their velvety texture is perfect for animal fur.

  • I only ship to the UK.

  • Send your photographs by email and we can discuss your requirements.

  • Bridles and Headcollars are an extra 15%. 

  • The maximum number of subjects for one portrait is four. 

  • The maximum full figures will depend on a number of factors, 

  • There may be additional charges for complex markings. 

  • I use quality artists materials - Daler Rowney soft pastels, and Pan Pastels on Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel Paper.

  • When you receive your pastel portrait/painting it will be wrapped in archival glassine paper. 

  • Please take your painting to a reputable framer who will mount and frame it accordingly to protect it. 

  • Please do not hang or store your painting in direct sunlight or damp conditions. 

  • Enjoy your painting for many years to come!

There are many occasions where a pastel portrait of your dog, horse or cat would be a fabulous and unique purchase. I have painted dog portraits for Birthdays gifts, Christmas gifts, Weddings gifts, and as tribute to a dearly loved and lost pets, or just simply as a gift from loving pet owners to themselves! In fact you don't really even need a reason to have your best friend's handsome face immortalised in an artwork – just treat yourself! 

I have happy and satisfied clients who have come back again and again many times over the years for me to paint their recently passed away pet and/or their latest beloved dog. They have searched me down for dog, horse and cat portraits when I have moved house, and even when I got married and changed name! They know I pride myself on getting a very good likeness of the looks, character and spirit of their dog, horse or cat.

I've painted single dog portraits, and up to 4 or dog portraits in one painting, but this requires careful planning, if I don't think I can work with your photos then I will say.

 

I can come and take photos for the purposes of creating a painting for a fee within Essex and Suffolk, I would take a number of stills and videos.

 

My fees for this are according to distance:

  • Clacton and surrounding areas up to 5 miles £30 

  • 5 -10 miles  £40

  • 10 - 15 miles £50

  • 15 - 20 miles £65

  • 20 - 25 miles £85

  • 25 - 30 miles £105

 

I can put 2 or more dogs together in a portrait from two different photographs although this will cost extra due to the work needed to create an initial composition sketch for your approval. 

 

For commissioned dog portraits I always paint in pastels because they are more time efficient, there is no drying time and no varnish is needed but they do require framing with a mount and glass which I can arrange if required.

As with most pet portrait artists, I have a waiting list which varies depending on time of year and demand, but is usually no longer than approximately 8-8 weeks.
