Honor and Immortalize your Pet or favorite Animal
“Imagine your best friend, your faithful companion, captured in watercolor.”
Interested in a custom animal or pet portrait? I celebrate pets of all shapes and sizes! Not only do I paint cats & dogs - I love painting domestic, wildlife, farm and exotic animals such as rabbits, horses, leopards, tigers, squirrels, chimps, hummingbirds, gecko lizards, teacup pigs, ponies, sugar gliders, beta fish, or parakeets/budgies! No animal is off-limits for me to paint, it can be real, mythical, extinct, whatever. There’s a lot of time, love, and energy that goes into creating each custom piece!
I try to capture the unique personality of your “best friends” in a realistic style that can convey more emotion than a mere photograph!
I work on high-quality acid-free paper, watercolor pens, and watercolor pencils. Much of my work has a simplified or no background, allowing all the focus on the animal. This minimalist approach leaves the viewer with an unadorned appreciation for the beauty and simplicity of the animal in the painting. My standard painting sizes are 5x7, 8x10, or 11x14. Larger sizes are available upon request. (see below)
If you haven’t gotten a portrait of your pet done yet, it’s definitely a nice thing to consider. Having an artist-crafted dog portrait or cat portrait is a great way to celebrate the awesomeness that is your pet. It also can serve as a fond tool of remembrance for when your pet has passed away.
How to Pick the Right Size for Your Portrait
The first step to ordering any custom piece of art is determining your aim and priorities.
Ask yourself what's more important to you: the cost of the portrait or the subject matter?
If you are struggling with choosing a portrait size, don't worry: we're here to help!
Choosing a size is one of the most common questions we get, so we’ve put together this handy size guide to walk you through the considerations.
At Davis Images, I offer three standard portrait sizes: Small 5"x7" ($175), Medium 8"x10" ($350), and Large 11"x14" ($690) as well as custom orders, to fit your budget and portrait considerations. If you would like something bigger, such as 16" x 20" or larger the price starts at $1440+.
The number of subjects and the composition of your photo dictates your portrait size options. If cost is your primary consideration for your portrait, then start with the size that works in your budget and select a photo that follows the below guidelines.
