Custom Colorful Pet Portraits From Your Photo

Custom Colorful Pet Portraits from your Photo

Pet PortraitsUpdated August 10, 2020

Note on Scheduling Portraits: I am currently taking pet portraits scheduled in advance on a waiting list. My next available opening is the second week of September, 2020. I require a deposit to secure your spot on my list.

Immortalize your best friend with a custom colorful pet portrait by Rebecca Wang Art. My specialty is creating a colorful and fully customized portrait of your pet.  With vibrant rainbow colors and bold brush strokes, your pet’s personality will shine through.  My style blends realistic anatomy and proportions with bold psychedelic color to create one-of-a-kind artwork of your beloved pet.  Although my portfolio has mostly dogs and cats, I am capable of painting any animal.

Reference Photos for Pet Portraits

For pet portraits, please pick out one photo that you like the best, and this will be used as the main reference.  Also please have at least 3-4 other photos of your pet that I can use as secondary references.  Please make sure the photos are detailed, are in focus, and not too dark or too light.  Digital photos can be sent to my email address.

I am willing to work with whatever photos you have of your pet.  As long as it is not too blurry or dark, I am able to transform them into a beloved painted memorial of your pet.  Please keep in mind, however, that the better the picture quality, the better details the portrait will have.  The more photos that you have of your pet that I can use as a reference, the better.

For tips on taking better pictures of your pets, please read my Blog Article on photographing your pet.

Materials Used

My pet portraits are hand-painted with high quality professional acrylic paints on stretched canvas. Canvas sizes 18″ x 24″ and smaller are in 3/4″ thick canvas, and sizes larger than 18″ x 24″ are on 1.5″ thick canvas, unless otherwise requested. These paintings can be done in any size, and are sealed with a varnish to protect the painting. They are shipped ready-to-hang, and do not need to be framed. A hanging wire will be attached to the inside back of the frame to allow for easy hanging.  Please see the chart below for general price quotes for each size painting.

Please note that these are hand painted originals.  I work 100% with traditional media, and do not use any digital or printed material in my artwork.  You, as the customer, will receive the original painting, not a print.

I use normal acrylic paints in my paintings, and also include sparse use of fluorescent acrylic paints to add a dash of color.  I also have the ability to add acrylic paint embellishments that include the use of specialty acrylic paints, such as metallic paint, glitter paint, color shift paint, and iridescent paint.  Addition of these paints is upon special request only.

I will also work with pastels, colored pencils, or graphite pencils/charcoal if you prefer.  Please email me for a special price quote if you want these materials used instead.

Examples of Backgrounds

The backgrounds in my portraits are usually abstract and very colorful.  A typical background is chosen to contrast with the subject.  I usually choose a dark background to contrast with a light colored subject (example: white dog) and a light colored background to contrast with a dark colored subject.  Most clients will have me choose a background, and I choose the colors and style based on the dog’s colors and personality.  Below are examples of common backgrounds that I use for my portraits, to give you an idea what to expect.  You are welcome to choose one you like, or leave it up to me.

Payment Methods

My preferred method of payment is PayPal.  I require at least a 50% deposit for all commissions paid using PayPal before I start, and the other 50% paid upon completion.   You can send money with PayPal even if you do not have an account.  I do not accept personal checks at this time.

You can also order a pet portrait through my Etsy store.  This allows you to pay with a credit card or debit card of your choice, and is guaranteed. For purchases made through Etsy, 100% of the amount is paid in full up front.

Prices and Shipping

These prices include shipping within the United States only. If you live outside the United States, please email me for a shipping estimate.

Texas Residents: Please add an additional 8.25% for sales tax if paying by PayPal.  Etsy will collect sales tax automatically.

I include an artwork care sheet and a certificate of authenticity with every portrait.  Stretched canvas paintings 8″x10″ and larger will come with a hanging wire attached to the inside back.

The prices below are for a single pet portrait with acrylic paints on stretched canvas, with an abstract background.  All currency is in US Dollars.  Additional pets on the same canvas, or a detailed background are extra, please email for estimate.
