Pet portrait, black and white watercolour cat with coloured shirt
PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE THESE ARE ALL EXAMPLES AND EVERY PORTRAIT IS DIFFERENT AS IT IS PAINTED BY HAND IN WATERCOLOUR INKS. THE CATS ARE PAINTED IN BLACK AND WHITE WATERCOLOUR WITH COLOURED SHIRTS. WE CAN PAINT ANY ANIMAL, IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A CAT.
This style of cat portrait is fun and quirky and gives you the opportunity to dress up your cat in anything from your football team’s shirt, a Liberty floral blouse, a favourite top you have always worn to military regalia. There is much more detail in them than the sketchy mini portraits as Abi and Roz spend longer painting them. They are larger than the sketchy ones. There is also a longer lead time as Abi paints the cat and posts it to Roz to add the colour.
- Each comes in a 12” x 16” mount.
- It is painted at the bottom of the page with white space above it and to the sides.
- Abi works from ONE photo of your cat. The better the photo, the better the portrait.
- If you require something different, we are happy to accommodate but any added extras will cost more, so please email us for a quote.
- It comes unframed, but is sized to fit in standard Imperial sized frames. Search ‘12” x 16” frames’ and there are lots available in stores with big homewares sections or invest in professional framing.
Tips to take a good photo for the best cat portrait
- Take it in daylight.
- Kneel or lie down to take it so your cat is at your eye level and you are eye to eye.
- Ideally your picture needs to be taken face on, so facing square to the camera and Abi can see all their features clearly.
- We work from ONE photo, so if you feel this doesn’t show your cat in all it’s gorgeous glory, it’s not the one we want!
