Commissioning a Realistic Pet portrait

Commissions are taken from across the world. For inquiries, please contact me and I'll be happy to discuss the process with you in detail.

Photo Reference 

Some quality photos of  your pet (Cats, Dogs, horses ...etc) is needed to get a clear picture of the tiny details to create a lifelike [hyper-realistic or photorealistic] painting.


For portraits, the ideal reference would be a high resolution photo taken at eye level but not absolutely necessary. I will guide you in the process of selecting the right image for the job. Email me the photos as attachments.

Pet's behviour

I have had pets all my life but still It is important for me to get to know yours to deliver you with a hand painted pet portrait that you'll love to hang on to.


Once deciding on the final reference photo, size and the medium, a non refundable 50% deposit is necessary to proceed with the painting.

Completion of the painting takes about 5 weeks but it may vary depending on the size and the complexity. You will receive an email with a photo of the completed painting for your approval. Once the remaining balance has been transferred, delivery will be arranged.
