Animal Art & Pet Portraiture

This combination of materials and surface is perfect for creating a realistic effect of soft fur texture.

The high-quality Velour Paper is thick and has a velvety feel. The technique used to create these portraits has been carefully developed.

Each portrait is built up in layers of fine detail using many colours, subtly blended to achieve a strikingly beautiful and bright tribute to a much loved pet.

Pet Portraits in Pastel Pencil

A new option for Pet Portraits. The sanded paper surface gives crisp, expressive marks, contrasting with softly blended areas to mimic fur textures.

The possibility for strong, vibrant colour and the option to add coloured backgrounds gives a slightly more contemporary feel to these portraits.
