Painting - Oil On Board
details from, "It's a Dog's World"
This is a cropped image from the left side of my enormous original Oil Painting, "It's a Dog's World" the painting has so many fantastic things going on that the left side is a complete piece of Art in itself.
The Staffordshire terrier coming out of the Trash can is the second waiter (serving only the best junk-food delicacies)
One person's trash is another ones treasure (or, in this case - their gourmet dinner). A feisty Jack Russell Terrier has his eye on select treats falling of the platter as he leaps up - the Boxer is content with his soggy ball.
Not yet healed from his last encounter this junk-yard-dog still has fight left in him, as an unnoticed timid robo-mutt relieves itself below. Below the hydrant is a Yorkshire Terrier lusting after a larger ball - an Italian Terrier holds his crotch tightly, awaiting his turn to pee...
I paint all animals including dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, along with people and their pets, full time for clients worldwide.
My pet portraits are painted and drawn from a photo. Therefore, in order to make your pet portrait look exactly like your pet, I can only paint your pet as I see it in the photo. Backgrounds can be changed but the subject cannot. For instance, I cannot paint the pet at eye level if the photo is looking down at the animal.
HERE ARE SOME GOOD PHOTO TIPS TO FOLLOW IN ORDER TO ENSURE A GOOD PET PORTRAIT FROM A PHOTO:
1. A good, clear photo is important. Digital photos are usually the best since they can be enlarged without too much distortion and will provide me with a great place to begin your pet painting.
2. If your animal refuses to sit still and pose, do not hestiate to use a leash or hold it because I can always remove it in the painting.
3. Try to be at the pet's eye level for closeups of head or face portraits with clear eyes and expressions that show the personality and individuality of your pet, since you will want it to look like your pet, not just any animal.
4. Natural light produces the best photo. Direct sunlight can wash out colors. But if all you have is an indoor picture of a deceased animal, for instance, don't worry about it. I can correct coloring or lighting or create a totally different background.
5. I can combine several photos to make one portrait if they are all at the same perspective or eye-level.
6. Let me know which photograph best captures the personality of your pet or I will let you know my opinion as to how it should be presented.
7. Photographs can be e-mailed, scanned or mailed to me and will be returned with your finished dog painting, cat painting or animal painting. Please contact me if you need my mailing address.
8. Send as many pictures as you can so we can choose the one that will give you the best results, and I will do the rest to make it beautiful for you.
