Portrait commission

The portraits I paint offer many options in terms of size, colors, composition, etc. They are entirely made with acrylic paint and protected by a layer of glossy varnish. Find examples of achievements below:

Three very simple steps are necessary to commission me: choosing the size, the background color and the photo of the animal to represent.

1 – Size

I work on coated cotton canvases, mounted on a wooden frame with a thickness of 1.5 cm. These paintings do not need to be framed, as the edges are painted.

2 – Background Color

Choose a color that suits you, like your favorite color, or the one that you associate with your animal (the color of its basket, its collar, etc.). I will integrate it into the background, adding the colors that seem suitable to me for a beautiful harmony. If you don’t have any ideas, I’ll make you an offer.

In any case before starting to paint the subject, I will send you a photo of the background to validate the colors.

3 – Your pet’s picture

I work from the photos you send me, so remember to choose a photo where your pet is in a position that you like and where the light is good. The better the photo, the better the portrait!

The ideal is to send me several photos so that I can take into account all the details of the animal. We will then choose together the one that you like the most and will serve as the main model.

The background of the photo does not matter since it will be changed in the portrait. If you want the portrait of several animals, I can bring them together on the same painting even if they are in different photos.

Have you made your choice ? Let’s go !

To place an order, a form is available at the bottom of this page. Tell me about your project, even if it seems crazy to you! We will see together what is feasible and what is not. Once the project has been defined and fixed, you can then pay the 50% deposit to confirm the order.

Once I have started, I will send you a photo of the background and the sketch, so that you can validate everything. Once the painting is finished, you will receive a message again with a photo of it. If you are satisfied with the end result, the painting is varnished. You can then pay the balance and the painting will be shipped. Payments in several installments are possible, the painting will be sent upon receipt of the last payment. Payment is possible by check, cash or bank transfer.

Shipping is done in perfectly suitable packaging. The paintings are protected by bubble wrap and I prepare the tailor-made package myself so that it is in the right format and perfectly protects the work. Each portrait is accompanied by its certificate of authenticity (and its wax stamp that I pour myself), which certifies that it was created by a professional painter.
