pet portraits

Some if my favorite illustrations of all time were created for the companies running the British Railway network in the mid 20th Century. Artists like Fred Taylor, Charles Pears, Frank Newbold, Frank Sherwin and Norman Wilkinson created an iconic style that excited the viewer and powerfully portrayed the mood and character of the subject. I love illustrating in the style pioneered by these artists, and think it is perfectly suited to capture our most loved friends in the world, our pets

process & cost

We start with an exchange over email, talking about the subject, and possible concepts and compostions. I like to place the subject in an environment that is meaningful to them (and you) and can incorporate any other specific details touches that we come up with. I then start sketching, I generally work up 2-3 different compositions, and once we have agreed on one we like I move onto completing the final painting.

A portrait costs £550.00 and includes an A1 (594 x 841 mm) bespoke print on German etching paper. The illustration can also be printed at any other size upon request. Email me at pets@benleon.me for any questions, or to get started!.
