DRD Portraits can create a custom, artistically created portrait which can be a detailed memento of a beloved pet and or a time in your life that you want immortalised in the traditional medium of portraiture.
There are many different styles of portraiture, from abstract through to exacting realism so it is important to consider what your relationship with your pet means to you or what you wish portrayed about yourself in a portrait. Are you zany or moody? Is your pet gentle or madcap? Qualities in you or your pet deserve recognition in an insightful portrayal, don’t you think? Do you want a portrait of just head and bust, whole body or pets/ people in a particularly memorable background like this painting of a Cocker Spaniel and his companions?
Many artists do portraits which reflect their own personal style or vision of the ‘sitter,’ which may not be what you want! So working with DRD portraits to create a sensitive rendition of your pet or yourself is of primary importance.
Also much depends on the use you wish to make of your custom pet portraits – is it to be a traditional artwork for your wall? Perhaps a digital image that can be turned into a series of print-on-demand apparel? Or maybe the image is to be used for some commercial purpose? Or even a combination of these!
When you are ready, contact Diana through the website with plenty of lead-up time before your event, deadline or if the portrait is to be a gift as there is a lot of planning involved. This is especially important for birthday and Christmas gifts. Diana Reynolds Design gift certificates are also available!
