What size portrait is best for me?

750wall-2Here are 3 sizes – Left to right – 30 x 40cms gallery wrap Oil – 60 x 70cms image framed Oil – 40 x 50cm image framed Oil.

Your portrait will be a lifelong treasured investment  so you  want  the best quality portrait possible!

Pastel Sketch Special

Great value! They start from $450 – suitable for a single  head portrait

Generally if your portrait is framed I custom frame each one , selecting the mouldings and building the frames to suit each portrait.

Pastel sketch specials are framed with ready made frames.  I upgrade these with better fittings and make them acid free so that your portrait will not deteriorate.

Because these frames are more economical I can pass my savings onto you!

There are less colour choices than with my custom framing. Black or wood ( lighter or darker toned wood).

I choose the frame to best suit each pet.

A great way to immortalise a number of pets. You can rearrange them to suit your taste and they can be framed if desired.

What does a 30 x 40cms image size best suit?

A 30 x 40cms image size gives an impressive single head portrait.

It’s possible to create a full body pose in this size  if the pose is compact. ( front on – 3/4 on poses) .

A double head portrait is also possible. I have done a triple head portrait in this size but your pets face will be getting pretty small and I can’t get much character into their faces. I’d suggest a 40 x 50cms image size or larger for a triple head portrait.

A single pet 30 x 40cms image starts at $450 for an unframed pastel pencil drawing.

I can supply  quality custom framing for your portrait  – just ask!

 Talk to me about extra pets – I can paint smaller or larger sizes.

If required I can create  multiple head portraits on a 30 x 40cms image size  but over the years I have found  I really can do more justice to your pet if we go larger.

These are just a few samples of portraits I have created for people. If you don’t see what you after have a look through my gallery pages.

I paint for clients full time and don’t have time to create many extra portraits.

If it’s not there it just means no one has asked yet!

My satisfaction guarantee means you can have me create your portrait in total confidence knowing  you will love the result!!

All the sizes mentioned are image sizes.

Oil on gallery wrap canvas is the size quoted .All the framed portraits will be larger.

e.g- 30 x 40cms image custom framed Oil c 43 x 53cms framed size. Pastels a little larger again.

The suggested sizes suggested  are all minimum sizes- larger will look better.

Values quoted are starting prices for each size .
