Dog Portraits in Detail

Dog Portraits

All of our canvases for our dog portraits are made bespoke, which means we create designs of our portraits to any shape and size. A popular shape is to have square shaped dog portraits. They work really well for single head / shoulders with both plain and detailed backgrounds.

Many clients like to have an oil portrait of their dog depicting just the head and shoulders with a studio style background. Something simple so that a clients dog is the complete focus of the painting. This can work really well as Nicholas will work with the colours and tones of your dog to create a beautiful, very natural background.

Clients most often take photos of their dogs outside, so it is very natural for them to be painted with a green grass background. This works well if your dog loves being outdoors, running free, laying in a garden or roaming fields.

If you are looking to have a background to your dog portrait and would like to see your dog full body or you have more than one dog, you have the option of having a scenic background too. Depending on the complexity of the background there might be an extra charge for this, however let us know your ideas and we can give you a quote.

We will always be able to create you a mock-up of how your portrait could look so please do email us your photos and let us know your ideas. Don't forget the photos don’t have to be of your dogs together in the same photo.
