Turn photos of your pet into a one of a kind oil painting to treasure for a lifetime. Our portraits are all hand painted by professional, well trained portrait artists. Send us your photos and special instructions and receive a pre-stretched oil on canvas portrait ready to hang on your wall in under four weeks.
You can email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to Pet Portraits, 1743 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558.
1. Are your paintings hand-painted or do you use giclee or canvas transfer?
Our paintings are 100% hand painted by one artist. No computer or giclee is involved at all.
2. What kind of photo and how many should I send?
You only need to send one photo, unless you'd like us to combine elements of different ones. (background of one photo, subject of another, for example) The best photos are taken not in natural light -- this lets the colors emerge more naturally and provides a richer palette for our artists to work from.
3. What's the difference between these portraits and others online?
The main difference between our portraits and others online is that ours are hand painted by real artists, not "gicleed" or uv'd or photocopied onto a piece of canvas. We pre-stretch the canvas on a wooden rack, assign your portrait to *one* artist and create works of art.
4. How long does it take?
Your custom oil painting arrives ready to hang in about 3-4 weeks. If you need it faster, let us know. We try to accomodate most special requests.
5. What if I don't like it?
Not only will you love the portrait, you will be amazed at the quality. But if you aren't satisfied, you don't have to pay for it.
6. How do you make sure I do like it?
First, we only work with the best animal portrait artists with 100% satisfaction records. Second, communication is key. Once you order, that's when our work begins. We will ask a lot of questions about what you are looking for in your portrait. We'll send you sketches and style examples to sign off on and approve. We'll also email you a photo of the finished portrait before we send it. You can make suggestions or changes. When you approve the painting we'll send it.
