Commission a Portrait

“Portraits that we’ll have with us forever. Greg has perfectly captured our 6 greyhounds and made them all look beautiful.” C Holden, Staffs

I know that your dog is not simply your pet, they’re an irreplaceable member of your family, and your best friend. The love you share is real and the time you spend together is precious. If you’re here it’s clear that, being devoted to them, you want to celebrate your best friend and the happy memories you’ve created together, and with someone you can trust.

An original piece of unique, lasting portrait art that forever immortalises and truly celebrates the unfading love you have for your adored companion. Perfect for those who want a refined one-of-a-kind celebration of their best friend/s that they can treasure for many years to come, skilfully crafted with the meticulous love and care that they deserve, by a dedicated artist.

Each portrait starts life as a small selection of considered, finely detailed high-speed photographs produced during an initial sitting with my subject. I take my camera to my subject and shoot at the home they share with their family as home territory is often where they feel at their happiest and most naturally relaxed.

Upon returning to my studio I then use refined and carefully considered and applied techniques to celebrate and enhance the reality of each subject, crafting the original photographs into completely unique pieces of portrait wall art over a number of days. A unique, painterly collage style that combines individual images of your hound at their best into a single, visually striking and completely unique piece of composite art, each unique portrait takes approximately 35 working hours to complete. All you need to do is choose the size of portrait that best complements your family home…………

 

“Such amazing portraits. I wish we’d done this when Ed was still with us.” J Anderson, Sutton Coldfield

…………Once completed, your portrait is presented as a framed Giclee print. Each one is carefully printed onto the highest quality Hahnemuhle fine art paper using fade resistant inks by gallery standard professional printers fully experienced in the preparation, presentation, storage and conservation of fine art prints. Your print is then hand mounted and sealed into a bespoke frame designed to perfectly compliment your portrait and crafted by fully experienced, professional framers using premium materials.

Supplied ready to hang in your home, your fully archival framed portrait will look as good on your wall in a lifetime as it does today, becoming a precious family heirloom and allowing you to treasure and enjoy your priceless memories both now, and for many years to come.

I only make a limited number of artistic commissions available to book each month in order that I can give my full and dedicated attention to each of my clients. It’d be great to hear from you when you’re ready, I’d love to be part of your best friend’s life.
