Commissioned horse and dog paintings combine traditional and contemporary art techniques, an eye for beauty, colour and composition to create one of a kind custom portrait paintings full of personality and character.
Paintings can be created from your favourite photos (even from phone cameras) and presented on cotton rag fine art paper, custom framed art print or ready to hang canvas.
All paintings are made here in my studio in Western Australia – I do not use artist sweatshops in India or Pakistan to create your painting!
I am trained in traditional oils, acrylics, pastels, ink, pencil and charcoal and my highly detailed and realistic portrait paintings have been sold to collectors around the world since 2003.
Unlike most digital art, these paintings are not computer generated or one click photoshop filters – they are hand painted brushstroke by brushstroke just like a traditional painting.
Each painting takes 8-20 hours to complete using a creative fusion process of techniques learned from over four decades of traditional art experience combined with modern digital tools.
A wacom tablet, digital art pen, custom brushes and sophisticated computer programs that emulate traditional art mediums allows me to create a very similar result in a shorter time so that I can offer custom paintings at a more affordable price point than traditional oil paintings.
Digital paintings: single subject on archival quality cotton rag fine art paper $495 unframed, $595 professionally framed.
