Watercolor Pet Portraits - Brooklyn, NY
This watercolor pet portrait turns your pet into a brilliant work of art. A hand-painted portrait can brighten any home and makes a great gift for the animal lovers in your life! I offer many sizes and variations to suit any budget and needs.
I typically choose colors and techniques based one how the animal inspires me, but if you have a favorite from my previous work, just let me know! I also typically crop in to the face of the pet but if you would like a full body portrait, please include that in your notes.
This watercolor pet portrait is made to order. Completion time is 3-4 weeks, however if you have a special deadline or rush order please email me first and I will do my best to accommodate.
My style is vivid and realistic; I use brilliant colors in unexpected ways to create a surreal and otherworldly image of your pet. Pieces sometimes feature drips running off the page and bold backgrounds, while others are more minimal to let your pet shine. My watercolor pet portraits capture your pet’s soul with detailed eyes, and breathe life into the form of the pet with expressive yet controlled brushstrokes.
To create a piece that will last a lifetime, my work is done completely by hand using the finest quality materials. After drawing your pet, I transfer the image to heavyweight watercolor paper. Then, I use professional watercolor pigments to bring your pet to life. My pallet includes colors from Windsor and Newton, M. Graham, and Daniel Smith.
