The Pet Painting Process... from Start to Finish
(Watch the video below)

Many of my customers ask me to describe the process that I use to complete their Custom Pet Paintings.
Below is a sample of the 10 steps in that process.

My customers graciously allowed me to use their pet portraits to demonstrate how it is done.

: After the canvas is primed
and dry, I draw the pictures of the pets in pencil from the best photos that are provided by the customer.
Nancy requested a pet portrait of just the head shots of their 3 dogs; Mickey, Brody and Dundee on a 24 x 36 canvas.

After painting the background according to the customer's request,
I paint the first dog in the back
of the pet painting, Mickey.

When Mickey is completed,

I paint the second dog in the back, Dundee


Brody is painted last because he is in the foreground,
in front of the other 2 dogs.
When the painting is complete I sign it and let it dry.

When the painting is fully dry,

it is given 2 coats of varnish to enhance the colors

and protect and preserve the pet painting.

I take a series of photos and then determine
which one best represents the finished painting.

That photo is emailed to the customer for their approval
and that is when the final payment is made.

Reasonable framing is available with many choices,
styles and colors at a low cost to my customers.
Here, one stretched canvas painting is being mounted on to the
frame that was selected.

The back is covered with brown paper
and I include a wire hanger.
The painting is ready is
hang in your home when you receive it.

STEP 9: 
The painting is carefully wrapped for shipping.

A sheet of acid-free paper covers the painting to protect the
finish and
then it is wrapped in bubble wrap.

STEP 10:
The pet painting is packaged and soon will be on its way
to your home to enjoy. Your pet will now be
immortalized on canvas forever!
