Every now and then its a bit of fun to paint something a little different, especially if you went to the races, and chose a horse that finished last

If I were to place a bet on a one horse race, I would still loose my money.
The horse would most likely fall over, and never finish the race haha.

Your pet portraits can be immortalised in a commissioned oil painting.

I’m a stickler for fine detail, and pride myself on bringing the canvas or linen to life with your pets image.

If I’m to be painting from a photo it is important to send me the highest detail image you have taken in good lighting. I always do my best to catch your pets features, but this can be difficult if I only have a very small and distant photograph to work with. If it’s possible I do appreciate several photos so I can get a feel for your pet.

My preferred medium is to use artists grade oil paint for all my pet portrait paintings. Artist Grade Paint as this gives the best possible colours without muddying the finished painting. (Beware of the Cheap Student Grade Oil Paint that is on the market)

NOTE: Some unscrupulous people who call themselves Pet Portrait Artists, use complicated software that modifies a photo to look like it was hand painted, then simply print it onto a canvas. They still charge you for a hand painted canvas.

Below are some of my commissioned artworks.

Commissioned Artwork – How to avoid mistakes in the Process

Commissioned Artwork and How to avoid making mistakes in the process.

The Easy Steps you need to take, when Commissioning any Original Oil Painting.

Gone are the days when you needed to have considerable wealth behind you, to even consider having a piece of Art Commissioned on your behalf.

Good quality portraits were priced at $2,500 a decade ago, a worth that has since multiplied 4 fold.

 Although there are some brilliant artists available for commissioned artwork, many are not brilliant businessmen.

Some dabble in reproductions and mass produce them, and try to pass them off as originals, this will make this artist initially more affordable, but cheapen their finished artwork so much, they are deemed worthless in the long run.

There are a few things you’ll need to decide, before you go and actually commission an original artwork piece.

First, you need to narrow down what type of painting you’d like. (Acrylic, Oil, Watercolour). If you’re looking for something specific, perhaps a personal portrait painting in the nude, or a very large unconventional, and colourful abstract painting, these are the things you will need to consider when choosing your artist. As not all will cater to your requirements.

Next, choose an appropriate artist for you commission work. All artists develop their own unique styles over the years, and you may be drawn to a certain style and technique, and will immediately fall in love with their work.

Next, Measure the size of the space where your commissioned piece will be displayed. Since size does matter in fine art, it’s an influencing factor in pricing.

The only way you’ll know what you really like, is when you see it. Go and visit a few museums and art galleries, by doing this, it will give you an insight to the large variety of the different styles of paintings, from classic to modern.

Ask questions of your art-loving friends can sometimes prove useful, and other-times drive you crazy. (Your Choice)

Finding the correct artist who is able to produce an amazing one-of-a-kind piece of art, is well worth your time invested in research.

One of the most satisfying things you can do when decorating, is to personalize your space, and hang paintings that have special meaning to you.

Once you’ve found an artist that fits all your requirements, and who’s work you would be proud to display on your wall,

It’s now time to contact them, and discuss the size of the artwork you would like, the things you want incorporated in your painting, and anything else you require such as framing, postage and packing, as all of this will reflect the finished price of your artwork.

The time-frame needed to complete it. Something that is often overlooked when in a rush to get things done yesterday etc.

Give your artist as many details as you possibly can, so he or she is more at ease with which way to take your painting.

 

MY AMAZING PROMISE TO YOU….
You may commission a painting from me.. even if you’re not considered to be a millionaire.
