Create a portrait of a beloved pet as a colour illustration.
About the illustration
These illustrations are drawn and painted by hand digitally on an iPad Pro. They are then prepared to be printed as a Giclée Fine Art Print on Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm Paper.
I work from a photograph, which I'll ask you to send me once I receive your order.
Can be illustrated with or without the botanical elements. If you'd like to add some botanical illustration to surround the pet portrait or be hidden on something like a dog neckerchief, I can work with you to use flowers and plants that portray characteristics of your pet through their symbolism or you can simply name your favourite plants and flowers to include. For more information, you can read about the symbolism of the a botanical wreath illustration I created to surround an ink cat portrait here.
Small: A4 (29.7 x 21cm) artwork fits within 20 x 15cm
Large: A3 (42 x 29.7cm), artwork fits within 25 x 30cm
Simply select your size and whether you would the portrait with or without the botanical element.
Turn around usually takes between 2 - 4 weeks and I will keep you updated along the way so you'll know exactly when to expect your order.
