No, not that one…! It’s now 21 weeks to – dare I mention it – Christmas, so if you would like a portrait of your furry (or feathered) friend painted from your photos, why not contact me to get yours ordered? The sooner the better.
Animal portraits make a wonderful gift, either for yourself or for someone special. Prices from £50 for a small pastel on paper.
Here’s an example, this is Rocco, acrylic on canvas:-
I found these pre-packed mounts in Cass Art and thought I would try doing some smaller pastels to fit them. I’ve made a start with a little Westie and a German Shepherd just to see how they do on my wall at the Garrion Bridges Antiques and Art centre.
As well as improving the presentation of the paintings, it allows the buyer to use or select their own frame which they can buy ‘off the peg’ as the mounts are standard sizes. The clear sleeves protect the pastels and allows a price to be attached to the painting without any damage to the paper or the mount.
Let’s see how they do.
I recently got the go ahead to start selling greetings cards of my animal portraits at the Garrion Bridges Art & Antiques Centre in the Clyde Valley. I was really pleased with the print quality of these cards and hope my customers will be too.
This proud chap has “hoofed it” down to my wall at Garrion Bridges Garden & Antiques Centre to see if someone wants to buy him & take him home….we’ll see.
Now with pics attached…! Both paintings available to buy for Valentines Day from my website – please contact me if you are interested. Thanks 🤓
