Ordering a pet portrait:
Background color options
I paint almost exclusively with Windsor and Newton oil paints, though on request I can work in acrylics.
1. Select the surface. Canvas and canvas board are both lightly textured and primed before use, but the canvas does not require framing, and the canvas boards, which are flat, do. Canvases come in various depths. I tend to use 3/4" or 1". If you prefer a deeper "gallery" canvas, please let me know. I also have a variety of cradled wooden panels available upon request. There is an additional charge for specialized canvases (gallery, linen, wood panel, etc.)
2. Select size. Sizes include: 6x6, 8x8, 8x10, 10x10, 11x14, 14 x 14, 16 x 16, 16 x 20, 18 x 18, 18 x 24, 20 x 20, 20 x 24, 24 x 36 etc.
3. Select background color. I can blend to match colors if you have a specific color in mind. Premixed color options are shown to the left. I generally paint solid colored backgrounds or very simple backgrounds, so the focus in on the subject.
4. Email a high resolution reference photo of the work you'd like painted to ColoradoSpringsPaintings@gmail.com Please note that the higher the resolution / crisper the photo, the better it translates to a beautiful portrait of your pet.
