Ordering a Portrait
a photo to work from
a favorite photo of your pet or person, if you're
not sure, send me a few and I can email/post you some
examples of how your portrait will look. Cropped head
and shoulders work really well with this style of
portrait. If you don't have any photo's of your pet
I can come and take some digital photos of the animal/reptile/person/insect/fish!
- (this can be part of the service providing you are
not too far from the greater manchester area)
Choosing a colour
colours do you like? Any combination is possible.
Choosing lighter colours for your backdrop and a darker
ones or black for your subject works best. Bright
simple colour combinations work really well with this
pop art style portrait.
Ink overlaps in some designs gives you a third colour,
adding another dimension.
your interior colour scheme
portrait can be painted to fit in exactly with your
colour scheme. For example, let's say your Lounge
is painted in Dulux White with Magnolia and a Cafe
Latte brown. Ill pick the same colours, complement
them, and use them to paint your pooch. Imagine...
your white wall with a caffe latte and magnolia portrait
of your beloved pet not only looking as cute as ever
- but matching the room! Fantastic. You might even
want to pick out that pink cushion on the sofa!
Pop Art, Andy Warhol's use of multiples featured in
portraits of marilyn monroe. Her photo image was repeated
25 times across the canvas. Imagine your pet in multiple.
Every portrait is going to be unique to you. You may
require a square or rectangular shape depending on
where you plan to hang your picture.
Essentially I'm aiming to provide you with a screen
printed/hand paint mix.
(hand painted in a similar style if it is too
large for me to print)
A portrait of the animal/subject with a colour
background and the subject's name if required.
Here's a price guide...
possibilities are of course endless and it all depends
on what you want, which we can discuss in person,
over the phone or by email. Following that I can email
you with some idea of how your artwork will look..
You may like to think about a more detailed portrait
with scenes for example, of your pets favorite walk/park/place/things
