A one of a kind, custom commissioned portrait of your dog is a very special process for both me as the artist and my client. My goal, is to create for you a sophisticated, yet natural portrait that captures the spirit and soul of your pet that will be ageless. My hope is you will be able to look at it, and immediately, the feeling of your pet will jump out at you!
Starting Your Commissioned Dog Portrait:
The best way to start is to get in touch with me through my e mail, introduce yourself and let me know what kind of portrait you are looking for. We will go from there. Please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the form here.
I work from photographs, therefore I can work with clients all over the country. I ask that you e-mail me your favorite photographs, including descriptions of what you love and endear about your dog. After we pick the most appropriate photograph together, I then will create a series of sketches based on your photograph and e-mail them to you. Once we decide on the appropriate sketch together, I begin the portrait in the medium of your choice. Either oil or watercolor.
My process is explained in this video from Sandy Sandwich Productions.
A custom, one of a kind dog portrait by Katherine is an investment that you will be able to enjoy for the rest of your life. It has immense value as it is a remembrance.
I do offer larger sizes as well. If interested, we can discuss larger sizes and prices. Watercolor portraits start at $700.00 and oils at $900.
