American Akita Portrait

This Beautiful American Akita is called Cali, which is short for California. Cali’s portrait was painted in pastels and is the frame size 18” x 14”. The portrait is to be a gift for a birthday.

American Akita Portrait – Client Instructions

My client wanted the background to be a dark Smokey colour with an ornate gold frame so it would fit in with other paintings in the house. My client had some lovely photos for me to work from.  She sent one, which she wanted as the portrait and other photos that showed the colouring and character. It is nice to see other photos of the pet so I can get the feel for the character. It isn’t necessary though, so if you only have the one photo that is fine.

American Akita Portrait – Work in progress and finished framed portrait

You will see I have taken work in progress photos to show how I build up the layers. Starting from the sketch and then building up the layers to the final finished portrait.

My client chose a lovely Smokey Grey mount which complements the painting beautifully. See how lovely the below portrait looks in the Ornate Gold frame. You can have your painting unframed or framed. I offer a selection of frames and a choice of mount colour. Contact me if you would like to discuss a Pet Portrait Painting.
