Are you a pet lover who finds comfort in having a dog as a friend? Well, I am one of those people who think that dogs are literally man’s best friend. A dog is loyal and his devotion will prevent him from leaving you alone once a bond has been established between you two.
It’s often said that a man chooses his pet according to his own personality traits. This might sound silly, but it is usually true, at least to a certain extent. Here are some examples. Studies showed that a person who appreciates art is likely to choose the so-called toy dogs, such as Chihuahua. On the other hand, someone known for his charisma and agreeableness will most probably pick friendly dogs like Golden retrievers. Actually it doesn’t matter what dog you have. What matters is how you show your affection and appreciation. Having a portrait of your beloved pet is a great way to preserve his memory and to show him how much you enjoy his presence in your house.
The easiest method to obtain such a portrait is by contacting an Internet based firm willing to help you get custom pet portraits at a low price. This way you are only a click away from getting what you are looking for. You easily send them the picture by email and you wait for the artist to finish the job. Make sure the photo presents your dog the way you want your painting to look like. For instance, if you want to portray your pet elegantly, you should probably put your dog in a dignified position. This way you will add expressiveness to the final portrait.
If you are more of a self-centered person and you like to do things on your own you can always create an oil painting from photo in the comfort of your house. Start by choosing the right picture. Pick one which best describes your pet’s features. It will help you when you will paint. Firstly, draw a loose outline of the subject then look for subtle details which will make your painting unique. Now, you can start to add colour. I suggest that you mix the colours on a palette before applying it onto the canvas. This way you will reduce the risk of having to start all over again because you picked the wrong colours. It is necessary that you work hard, but your efforts will pay off. After all, you are painting for your best friend, aren’t you?
Whatever approach you choose, I think it’s great you want to show affection for your pet. I hope you will succeed and I wish you the best of luck.
