Pet Portrait Prices
I imagine you will be wondering, how much does it cost to commission a pastel pet portrait?
Here you will find some information on what is included in the price, and my pet portrait price lists below, for both coloured pencils and pastel pencil portraits. You can find my animal-specific pricing pages, which include more details on sizing below.

Here shows a finished 8"x10" coloured pencil portrait in its mount. All you need to do is find a 10"x12" frame to suit your taste and decor. As you can see the portrait fills a reasonable space within the mount.
What Size Portrait Should I Commission?
There are a couple of factors that can affect what size portrait you should commission, not just the price.
5"x7"- Perfect for a small portrait of head and shoulders only. Not suitable for more than 1 subject.
8"x10"- Single head and shoulder, or smaller full-body portraits. Not suitable for more than 1 subject.
11"x15" - Extra large head and shoulder portraits, larger single full-body portraits, and more than 1 subject.
I also do square portraits, if your photo will look better as a square pet portrait I will let you know.
Postage in the UK is via Royal Mail Special delivery, and is £10. Your portrait will be extremely well packaged to prevent damage. International postage is dependent on the country, so please email me for a quote.
You are of course welcome to collect if you live locally, I am located near Matlock in Derbyshire.
Pet Portrait Gift Certificates
Left it too late to commission a portrait as a gift, or not sure exactly what they want? You can always buy a gift certificate. If you do this, I will design a personalised gift voucher card designed either with the recipient's pet, or a piece of my artwork. The cost of this is the value of the voucher, plus £3. Find out more on my Pet Portrait Gift Vouchers page.
