The largest pet portrait size is A3 and these portraits are based on a high quality headshot photo of your pet. If you have a specific photo in mind which includes body or other features, such as collars on dogs or bridles on horses, this can be accommodated. Check out the FAQs on taking the best photograph for your portrait.

A3 pet portraits are drawn on off-white, smooth, heavyweight paper (200 gsm). The paper is acid free which helps to preserve the drawings for longer. In addition, a fixative spray is used on completed portraits to protect the pencil from accidental smudging. The pencils used are Faber-Castell 9000 graphite pencils.

The Portrait Shop does not provide framing services, but can use the services of a local framer who provides exceptional bespoke framing. If you have any questions, or would like me to source a frame on your behalf, this can happily be discussed further when you order.

*Each A3 pet portrait takes 6 to 8 weeks to complete, but this time may be less or more depending on workload – you will be advised further at the beginning and throughout the process. Of course, if you have a strict deadline in mind, please provide details as soon as you can so this can be accommodated.

Regular updates and progress pictures are shared on The Portrait Shop Facebook and Instagram pages, so give follow along there and you might just see yours being made!
