Pet Portraits from Photos- What Size Portrait Should I Commission of My Pet?

In this blog post, I discuss how to choose a size of portrait in which to commission a portrait of your pet. I talk about factors that could change your decision on sizing, including composition, what animal you are commissioning a portrait of, the photos you have available for me to work from and where you envisage putting the finished artwork in your home.


What Size Pet portraits do You Offer?


As standard I offer 3 sizes of pet portrait. 5x7 inch "mini" portrait, 8x10 inches, and 11x15 inches. These are my standard sizes, however if you want a different size then I will be able to accommodate you.


Pet Portraits from Photos- When choosing a portrait size, do the photos matter?


Yes! Is the simple answer. If you are limited with the photos you have to work from, for example you are commissioning a memorial portrait of a pet that has passed on, the photos may be a limiting factor. The simple fact is that the larger the portrait you request, the higher quality the photograph I work from needs to be. Thats because there is more space for me to include the detail in the pet portrait. The more detail in the photo, the easier it is for me to be able to include all that detail in a larger portrait.


If you are not sure whether your photos are a high quality enough for the size portrait you wish to commission, just get in touch with me for a no obligation chat about your options.
