Pet Portraits

We’re now offering A4 black and white illustrations of your pet, or pets, as a giclée print.

Colin will create a hand-drawn portrait of your pet, based on a photo you supply, using a professional artist’s tablet. The illustration will then be produced as a giclée print.

Giclée is a French word, meaning “fine spray”. Your giclée fine art print is produced on a high quality inkjet printer with specially formulated inks, and printed on acid free, archival quality paper.

Tip: It’s best not to display any artwork or print in direct sunlight. The sun is a very strong bleaching agent, which can fade ink pigments. Frame your print behind glass to prolong its life.


Prices

A4 black and white illustration £80.
For two pets together in the same image £105.

For portraits of more than two pets, or any other queries, please email heather@colinmurdochstudio.co.uk.

Prices include postage and packing within the UK.
Payment by bank transfer, although we can also accept cheques.

All portraits are unmounted and unframed. Prints are posted in cellophane, inside a cardboard-backed envelope. We use Royal Mail’s signed for services (signature required at delivery).


Ready to order?

We’ll need a high quality photo of your pet. Photos taken in natural light (outdoors, or by a window etc.) are generally better as these show the level of detail Colin will need to draw from.

Tip: An overcast day is better than bright, direct sunlight (which can sometimes be harsh) and photos taken without flash are also preferable. Remember that the illustration Colin can produce will depend on the quality of the image you provide.

Please ensure features such as eyes and nose (and anything else unique to your pet) are shown clearly.

Email Heather at heather@colinmurdochstudio.co.uk to place your order. She’ll get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your order and ask any questions, if necessary. Please note that full payment is required before work begins on your portrait (a bank transfer is preferable, however we can also accept a cheque).

All illustrations are provided as an A4 giclée print on fine art, archival quality paper.

We’re usually able to send the finished print to you within 2-3 weeks, but we’ll let you know if it’ll take any longer.
