Immortalise your pet in a pastel portrait from 'Pawtraits' in Pastel!
A velvety pastel portrait is a unique way to immortalise your companion that will stay with you for a lifetime, and beyond. For most of us, animals are an important part of our family life. Unconditional loyalty and love is instinctive in many of our furry friends.
The soft texture of pastel lends itself beautifully to pet portraiture, and when framed professionally will last for a lifetime. My portraits are not intended to be a photograph but my interpretation of the subject which I endeavour to create as lifelike as possible.
Unless specifically requested I prefer to maintain the subject as 'life-size' as possible (little pets look a little silly oversized and big pets painted too small spoils their nobility).
To view more samples of my work, simply visit the gallery where you can see original photos and completed commissions and make up your own mind if you think you will be satisfied with your completed portrait.
The key element of my portraits is 'acid-free products' which indicates correct conservation and endurance of the work.
