Pet Portraits

 Pet Portraits make great gifts

We are often asked to create portraits of pets cats, dogs ponies and the more exotic of pets have all been immortalised. A characteristic pose action or expression can be captured and turned into a work of art. Often such tributes are in memory of a precious pet or in celebration of their lives.

We have worked out the best styles to use which work well with animals.  Our own pop art style, oil,  pastel and watercolour  and comic book as well as pencil sketch have all created spectacular results. All these have the subtlety and strength to show the character of the subject and bring it to life on paper or on canvas

How it Works

 

photo to art starts with a camera at scarlet ibis art
Photo?

Large sharp photos with plenty of pixels work best.  Not sure if a photo will work ? Please upload the photo to us and ask our advice.

Style

There are 16 styles to choose from. You can see all our styles here. Need help choosing a style? Please upload your photo to us

Medium

Our canvas stretchers have two depths. Choose shallow if you want to frame it, deeper to hang it straight on the wall.

We normally use lightly textured watercolour paper for most styles. Black and white or sepia often look better on satin or gloss paper.

Format

Usually, photos are portrait or panorama shaped. If you want to change the format crop it before you send it. Otherwise, tell us and we will do it for you.

we check your photo is ok for photo to art
Size

As a rough guide every 10 inches (25 cms) needs 1000 pixels. To find out how big your picture will print please upload it to us before you place an order.

Edging

For canvas prints you can wrap the picture around the sides Alternatively,  you can have a black, white or coloured edge.

For paper prints have a white border if you want to mount and frame.
