Watercolor vs. Acrylic
My style is a fresh take on traditional pet portraits with a loose flow of brush strokes and unexpected pops of color. I, personally, love the result of both watercolor and acrylic on canvas, so my advice would be to choose whichever speaks to you. Watercolor paintings are smaller works and are shipped unframed, while acrylic portraits range from small to larger statement pieces and ship ready to hang in a solid wood floater frame.

Note that prices are based on portrait headshots only. Full body and/or full background will increase the price, so please contact me prior to ordering to discuss the details.
Reference photos: The better resolution and detail in your photo, the better the portrait will be. I want you to love your forever painting, so let's make sure we use the right image. If you're unsure of what photo would work best or if you have any questions about the process, please contact me prior to ordering.
Current estimated wait time for Pet Portraits is 12-16 weeks.
