This beautiful digitally hand painted art is the perfect way to display portraits of your pet in your home. It can also be used as a spectacularly unique holiday card, birthday gift, anniversary gift or to celebrate any other special occasion.

Each pet portrait is hand painted by me using Corel Painter and Photoshop. Using your reference photo I carefully choose my colors, brush types, and strokes to create a traditional painting with digital media. Your portrait is then sent to you as a high resolution JPEG with a full release for printing with your favorite company. These are beautiful as framed prints or gallery wrapped canvases. They can also be very stunning on the new metal style prints.

Painted Portraits

One of the digital art services that I offer is custom painted portraits. I believe that these portraits are a beautiful way to liven up your traditional family photos. I can take a simple snapshot and transform it into a wall worthy work of art. Every photo session I do I paint at least one of the images for my client’s gallery and can paint more on commission.

Each portrait is painted by me using both Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. I take a reference photo, either one I’ve taken or one sent to me by a client, and turn it into a beautiful painting. Each image is color corrected and styled in Photoshop to prepare for painting. They are then taken into Corel Painter and painted by hand utilizing my Wacom tablet as my paintbrush. Each image is a completely unique custom work of art. I then have your painting printed on fine art canvas and gallery wrapped or custom framed. I believe these portraits are the perfect mother’s day gift and I would love to paint one for you!

I am able to do many a few different styles of paintings. My specialties are watercolor and oil/pastel. Corel painter has an amazing selection of brushes that allow me to mimic pretty much any medium I choose! I do most of my paintings with the oil and pastel brushes.

As you can see each image is a one of a kind custom work of art.  If you purchase the printed product you will also receive the digital file.

These painted portraits make the perfect gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas and any other event you can think of. Mother’s day is only 6 weeks away, why not get your mother a custom work of art she will treasure forever! You can order your image in my etsy shop.
