I adore painting animals and I especially love seeing peoples reactions when they see their new painting arrive at their house.
Not only do I paint household pets, but I often paint farm animals, show animals or normal everyday cattle, sheep or horses etc.
HOW DOES IT WORK
I will often go out to the house (or farm) and take photos of the animal in question from different angles. Or many times people send me a favourite photograph, especially if the beloved pet has passed on.
I will then create the painting and either deliver personally (my personal preference) or ship out to the new owner.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
I cannot really promise a set time per painting as there are many aspects like, size of the work, clarity of the photograph I am working from, (it may need some editing to bring out the best details), details wanted, ie no background is far faster to accommodate etc
WHAT IS THE PAINTING DONE IN
All my paintings are done in acrylics, or oils, on canvas.

If you require a frame please contact me. Plain frames are obviously cheaper than fancy ones. Let me know what kind of frame you are interested in and I will get prices. I do not normally frame canvas work but am happy to.
