Custom Pet Portraits
I work from photographs of your pet
Nancy Cooper Funk ~ ink & watercolors

Most helpful are photos that clearly show the
details of the pet and the preferred pose.

Please include several photos (if possible).
They will be returned.  You can also e-mail
the photos to me.

Try to specify which pose you prefer and whether
you would like to feature the face or the whole body.
Sometimes people prefer the head pose in one photo
with the body pose of another and this can be done
if they are anatomically compatible.

I love to receive descriptions of the personality
(example sweet, cuddly etc.).

Also try to describe the color of the eyes and fur and
anything you feel is important to familiarize me with
the pet.

Each one is so unique and has it’s own story and be sure
to include the pet’s name.

rough sketch

Once the photos are received and you have decided
on a size, I will make a rough sketch for you approval.
Yo can indicate whether or not that is what you had
in mind.
I usually send the rough sketch as an e-mail attachment.
We can discuss any changes or details about the portrait
via e-mail or whatever form of communication is
convenient for you.
Then I will continue with my fine pens and watercolors
to capture the feeling of the special pet.

Plain or Fancy

Indicate whether you would like the background to
remain white or a pale tinted shade of a favorite color
or a color that works with the colors in the subject.

Perhaps you may want to include a hint of the specific
background in the photo you chose.
(example: the edge of a pillow or part of an outdoor scene.)
I can also draw a custom background ~ a variety of
possibilities exist.
Multiple pets in one picture or an especially intricate
background may require an additional charge which we can

mats & frames

Each painting is matted in a white mat.

Frames are wood and may vary in shades  so please check with me to see what is available at any given time.
I usually have frames available in sizes 5x7, 8x10 & 11x14.

I would be happy to discuss what would be best for you!
