It takes considerably longer to achieve a likeness to an individual animal, rather than a likeness to a general breed and price for portraits reflects this difference.
The paintings are often commissioned by the owner but are just as often commissioned as a special birthday or Christmas gift as a surprise. Phil would be happy to discuss your requirements, the suitability of your photos and advise you on poses and expression in your photography.
It would be possible by arrangement (in the UK) for the artist to visit you in your home to photograph the animal for you or for you to visit his studio and have the photos taken.
Although the demand for paintings on velvet is very great the artist would be very pleased to quote for artwork in traditional mediums (oils, watercolours etc.)
For 14"x 18" oil pastel paintings on velvet with a frame the price is £250 plus £12 post and packing (UK).
The artist will email a photo of the painting for approval after which payment is due and the painting will be dispatched.
Please allow one month for the work to be done.
Special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries) can be catered for please let the artist know.
