Commission custom dog portraits

A custom portrait painting of a much loved pet makes a wonderful keepsake and very special gift for animal lovers everywhere. I adore my own dogs so I understand how much your dogs mean to you.  Their personalities are individual with different quirks and character traits, but without fail they love us unconditionally and we love them back.  A portrait painting based on a photo can be a beautiful way of keeping the memory of our furry friends alive and with us always.

If you are interested to learn more, I invite you to a free consultation without obligation.  Just email me your favourite photos for me to assess, advise and discuss together a picture you would like me to paint within your budget.  You can see more information on How to Commission a Painting or visit my Etsy or Folksy shops.

Personal contact between client and myself is a vital part of my process because I like to learn as much as possible about the subjects I paint. You will find work-in-progress images will pop regularly into your inbox from start to completion of your painting, so you are always aware of how your commission is developing and can offer feedback. The work is therefore a collaboration between you and the artist, myself Bee Skelton. And your painting will only be shipped to you when it has received your final full approval. 

I use high quality primed stretched canvas or canvas board with artist quality oils or acrylic paints. Both are fabulous, but you need to know that they have different characteristics. Acrylic paint dries almost immediately, whereas oil paint takes much longer and time needs to be allowed after a painting is completed for it to dry before safe to ship. Therefore if you need your painting very quickly, please let me know and I may recommend using acrylics. 

As an artist I am continually
inspired by the affection my clients have for the subjects they commission me to paint. Whether it is their child, partner, parent, family pet, home or a favourite place, love is infectious and gets right into the paint.
