Very detailed portraits aren’t necessarily the best!

You may think the more detailed a portrait the better it is – it looks more like a photo.

However a detailed portrait can then end up just like a photo- flat and lifeless- you lose the soul of your pet!

The problem with detail is unless it is selective detail your pet’s character can be overshadowed by all the clutter.

You don’t notice every hair when you look at your pet – only their loving expression , soulful eyes or soft coat. These things can be better emphasised in your portrait without every hair being detailed.

My paintings are selectively detailed. I put the emphasis back on the areas that are important !

I let your pet’s character shine.

You love them but they won’t be with you forever.

Keep the feeling alive in your custom portrait.

A dog portrait of Shadow the ships dog from the TV show People and Food of the Mediterranean

Your painting of our beloved Shadow arrived in France without mishap.
The portrait is now hanging in pride of place , beautifully lit on our living room wall , with her ashes just beneath her in an urn on top of a 17th century armoir .
We cannot express the delight we feel each time we enter the room.

Without knowing Shadow , you have managed to perfectly capture her expression and temperament. Her nose seems wet, her hair soft enough to still pat and those dow eyes looking down on us completely unravel us. We are totally overwhelmed and cant thank you enough.

You are truly talented, not just in technique but in portraying the very soul of someone we have known and loved. It was the best gift we have ever received.
With our thanks and very best wishes,

A photo freezes a moment while a portrait melts hearts!

” Your portraits capture more life than a photo ever could! “

Vanessa

Your portrait will not just be a great likeness but will recapture the feeling and life that photos lose. With selective detailing I enhance the important things – their eyes , expression etc and downplay the clutter. When you look at your portrait it will bring back a lifetime of memories of the good times . You can feel that they’re still with you long after they’ve passed on.
