The portraits of pets are beautiful; it helps to celebrate the life of the pet. A Pet portrait painting helps capture the joyous movement and expression of that moment or of your pet that crossed the rainbow bridge. The Pet portraits are a special, unique, and fantastic way to honor the bond that the pet owner and their family can understand. Painting a picture seems to be a difficult and challenging task. It’s necessary to consider the various styles of a pet portrait, ranging from realistic to stylistic or even anime- style.
Gather the supply
First thing to do is gather all the supplies. One can have a variety of paints. It is essential to have a photo of the pet that one wants to paint. One should have the art canvas or the surface to paint upon. Treat the area with gesso if one uses the wood: a porous surface or any acrylic paint. A black marker, a pencil paintbrush, and a paint pallet are necessary before starting the painting.
Decide on style and background
Decide on the environment. It follows easy steps. Think of the in-image if one wants it to be abstract, realistic, or a mix of both. While doing the background, consider the highlights, shadows, and even tones that match the client’s home or favorite color.
Print the picture
When the background gets dries off, start with painting the pet; Print the photo out in black and white to see the color contrasts better and any highlights for shadows. It can be a time consuming, as the Print could also be too dark, so look at it properly.
Transfer the picture on canvas
Outline the photo and transfer it to the canvas. It can be easily traced by using carbon paper on the dried canvas. Or the other option is to trace the lines, shadows, and the entire thing that one wants to display. Use a pencil. Use the paintbrush and rub the back page; this will help transfer the graphite to the dried paint.
Use the marker and redraw the pencil lines. And then use the acrylic paint right away if one wants to have a less stylized approach. Color the image, be creative with the colors, or by using the photo reference, paint it to give a more realistic view. Add white highlight for the eyes, or create different colors for the eyes to contrast the painting.
By following these steps, a painter can easily create a pet’s painting, as a person always adores a pet, so it is essential to look after every detail and create the pet portrait with more creativity and style. Or you can commission an artist on online gallery fame art gallery.
