A special note from Katya
While I can finish a painting in a day or two, it will need to wait for at least 10 days before it’s dry to touch and ready to be shipped.
I love all animals alike and I am very excited to paint yours! However, I am very particular about the quality of the reference image. I will only be able to take up a commission if I believe in the image. Ideally, I would need a close up, a portrait shot with a very clear view of all the facial features, especially the eyes since they are the focal point of the painting. The photo should be well lit up, clear, sharp and have a candid pose. I prefer not to deal with action shots, and don’t really enjoy painting pets wearing sunglasses or hats. I am way more interested in bringing out the animal’s soulfulness, their gentle presence, wisdom and unique character. If this resonates with your vision as well, we are on the same page and I would love to hear from you!
I am open to various sizes, 8”x6” ($225) and up.
