For a beautiful original watercolour portrait of your dog please contact me – Alison Fennell on firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT DO I NEED TO SUPPLY?
All I need are very good quality images of your dog in the pose you wish to have him painted.
I require at least 1 Megabyte (!MB) images so that I can see every last detail in your dog’s face.
That way I can give you the best portrait possible.
HOW ABOUT FRAMING?
Framing is simple once I have completed your portrait as I paint to standard 8×10 inch or 10×12 inch photo size.
This means you can skip your original custom dog portrait into any off the shelf frame available from department stores and supermarkets!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
My turnaround time is under 2 weeks from request to finished painting!
HOW MUCH ARE THEY and WHAT ABOUT DEPOSITS?
My 8×10 inch original watercolour portraits are £95 plus shipping/packing
My 10×12 inch portraits are £125 plus shipping/packaging
I do not request a deposit.
WHERE ARE THEY PAINTED?
I paint my animals in my home studio here in Pontypridd, South Wales, UK
ARE THERE ANY DOGS YOU DO NOT PAINT?
I do not paint shaggy coated dogs.
Smooth-coated dogs are my speciality and as I love painting those that is all I do. Please contact me if you are unsure.
I have been painting in watercolour for 25 years and specialise in animals. Their faces and character continue to engage and entertain me as I paint.
My work is currently for sale in Dunelm throughout the UK as large prints and The Museums & Galleries Collection sell a range of 12 of my animal cards called “Alison’s Ark” in museum and art gallery shops UK-wide.
For years I have donated my art to various animal rescues and charities including The Fox Project, Animals Asia, Hope Rescue and The Dog’s Trust and several rabbit rescues.
I regularly write for Leisure Painter Magazine giving step by step demonstrations on watercolour subjects.
I also teach two watercolour classes near Cardiff as well as running private one to one workshops for watercolour students.
I’ll look forward to hearing your doggy requests!
