Custom Dog Portraits by Amy Reges
These are a few examples of special Labrador paintings, other breed and mix-breed dog portraits, cat and horse paintings that show my simplified style and variations. Your commissioned artwork will be a family treasure and a unique celebration of the bond you value and share with your pet. Please scroll to see examples of black Labs and mixes, yellow Labs and chocolate Labrador paintings, a few other pets, and for information on how to commission a portrait of your own.
The above example shows the photo that I used for reference. Good quality photographs of your dog will contribute to the best finished painting. Photos should be fairly close up, in focus, in good light, and preferably taken outside. Always with NO flash.

Commissioning a portrait is an exciting experience, much more than simply
buying a painting. You will have the opportuinty to work with me
in selecting the right photographs, colors and composition to assure
your satisfaction with the final painting. I enjoy reading your stories about
your pet too, so I get a feel for his or her personality, which helps me
capture their spirit in the portrait.
Portraits are painted in acrylic on stretched canvas. Prices vary with size and composition.
