A pet portrait done using artist quality acrylics will last for generations with no special care. Modern acrylic artist paint is manipulated to convey a rich and vibrant portrait of a beloved pet that is alive with color, shape and texture that no photograph can emulate. There is a vast difference between a pet portrait painting completed by a real artist and a photograph printed on canvas.

An artist will work with the person commissioning the painting. The background, pose of the pet and other elements will all be worked out before work begins. Usually a rough sketch is done as a precursor to how the painting will be brought together. A live sitting with the artist and pet is not necessary. A beautiful painting can be completed in many instances from a single photograph though having more reference photos makes it easier on the artist.
