Pastel pet portraits are traditionally hand-painted using artist grade pastel sticks and pastel pencils from Schmincke, Unison, Windsor and Newton, Stabilo Carbothalio and Faber Castel on Clairefontaine Pastelmat papers and boards.
This versatile medium with it’s smooth, velvety texture allow for silky, soft furs, sharp details and softly muted backgrounds that allow the subject to stand out enhancing it’s characteristics, which I feel are crucial for a beautiful, realistic portrait. Pastels are the perfect medium to capture a lifelike and detailed reproduction of your treasured pet.
Soft pastels are my preferred medium to mimic lifelike pet portraits which capture your pet’s characteristics perfectly.
Pastel pet portraits are available in various sizes. Custom sizes are also available.
