How to order a Pet Portrait ...
Hi! I'm Zara and I draw sketchy pet portraits from your photos in a loose and expressive style using a combination of pencil, ink, and soluble graphite. For larger drawings I sometimes also like to use soluble carbon and charcoal for added depth and texture.
The best drawings come from photos that remind you the most of your pet's personality, whether it's your dog running on the beach or your cat cuddling up on your lap.
A small sketch can make a thoughtful gift. Or why not commission a set of pet sketches to form a beautiful wall display dedicated to all of your pets, past and present?
Many people love to collect my drawings of their pets over time to celebrate pet birthdays and other special memories.
The best thing is that I offer friendly pricing, with something to suit everyone's budget! So scroll down and take a look at the options ...
Single Pet Sketch
£25 – A5
£50 – A4
£100 – A3
Set of Pet Sketches
£40 – 3 x Minis
MINIS are postcard-sized sketches (apx. A6). As a set of 3 they make a lovely gift when framed or displayed together (frame not included).
£100 – Small Collection
£200 – Large Collection
The SMALL & LARGE COLLECTIONS are perfect for creating a complete wall display of custom artwork to celebrate your pet(s). The small collection includes sketches in each size from minis to A5 and A4. The large collection also includes an A3 sketch. You can provide up to 10 photos for me to choose and work from and include as many pets as you like.
I am also happy to work with you to design a bespoke collection so that you can choose the photos I draw and the size drawings you want. Get in touch to discuss your ideas and I will provide you with a quote if needed.
Your Kind Words...
I'm very proud to share some of the kind words people have said about me and my work over the years. These are all real reviews from my clients that were posted on the Opulent Mutts Facebook Page.
"I've just received my portraits from Zara and they are beautiful! Both my dogs are sighthounds which I think can be hard to capture in a drawing but the likeness and movement in all the pictures is wonderful. Totally thrilled and would certainly recommend." – Alexandra Watts
"Zara has drawn both of my dogs twice now and I really couldn't be happier with my drawings, they really are fantastic, she has captured both of their personalities perfectly. In one of the photographs my little girl was in, I very cheekily asked if she could draw her in the picture too, Zara told me that she wasn't a people artist but she would have a go, I'm so pleased she did cause the result is amazing. I can't recommend Zara enough, she really is one talented person xx" – Tracy Smith
"Zara is an excellent artist and captured each of our three dogs perfectly. Their different personalities really shone through in the drawings. On top of that the communication with Zara and her friendliness was second to non. Great value for money and I highly recommend her." – Linda Pinnell
