Here is where you find out what a Pet Portrait oil sketch is and how to commission one of your precious pet. Below are some common questions and answers.
WHAT IS AN OIL SKETCH?
An Oil Sketch is a painted portrait of your pet, but it is a simpler rendition of your pet. Your pet's head and a little of the neck will be painted on a 6 x 8 inch sheet of Archival Oil Paper with a very simple background. It only comes in this size. The oil sketch is an affordable option to purchase art with a deeper meaning for you. You can see an example of an Oil Sketch with Clair Bear.
What is the difference between an oil sketch and a full oil painting of my pet?
When you commission an oil sketch, I paint your pet's likeness on a 6 x 8 inch sheet of archival oil paper, with a very simple background and just the head and a little of the neck will be painted. This is the only size I paint oil sketches on.
A full portrait is painted on an archival Masonite panel and is customized. Below are a few options you'd consider:
Flexible sizes - 6 x 6, 8 x 10 and larger.
Choices with background colors
*A full oil portrait starts at $ 340.
Do I need to frame my oil sketch?
The finished painting can go like it is into a memory book where it won't be folded or scratched. Otherwise, it does need to be framed. My best suggestion is to take it to a framer. Because the finished piece is small, it shouldn't be to expensive.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes I do. For either the oil sketch or a full portrait I require a 50% deposit. I only work with PayPal invoicing and after the deposit is paid, your commission goes on my calendar. Allow 3 weeks for an oil sketch and 4 weeks for a full portrait.
What else should I think about when considering a pet portrait oil sketch?
It makes one of the best gifts you could give a pet owner.
