The beautiful photograph evokes strong feelings.
The painting of a beloved pet adds timelessness to our bonds.
Modern advances in technology have made it possible to paint digitally. This is very different from adding a simple filter to an image. The digital artist paints stroke by stroke with virtual brushes. One can paint an image from scratch digitally, or one can clone paint images. Either way it remains unique and original art, as no two painters have the same hand.
Digital painting saves time due to not having to wait periods for paint to dry, nor does the artist (and her family) have to inhale the fumes. However, the painting, once printed on archival material, can last way beyond a 100 years. Certainly worth the investment for that special moment/animal in one's life.
As the original digital file is NEVER available, your painting is a once-off exclusive and unique item as with any organic painting.
Whilst it is possible to paint from a poor quality image, a higher res image allows the artist to produce a larger painting for use in large wall art items. If it is an image taken by a professional photographer other than myself, be sure you have the copyright/right to use it in this way.
Would you like a portrait style painting or would you like a scene? In the case of a scene, would you like your dog sitting in a field of flowers? Or your horse on the beach? This does affect the length of time in painting and eventual costs.

Upon receipt of your retainer, you are added to the queue.You will be notified once I start painting. Depending on my workload at the time, I will usually complete it within 3-6 weeks . After this it is sent to the professional lab for printing (and framing if requred).
Your painting will be delivered to your door by myself or a courier. You can also collect if you wish. You will be provided with a free watermarked webres version to share on Social Media.
Paintings start at R995 for an A5 framed print (Half Carat Package). Larger prints or canvas (highly recommended) options are also available. Typically my clients spend R2 000+ on a particular painting (one or more products). Scenes, composites and multiple subjects command a higher price.
