Interested in commissioning a dog portrait of your own? Here are some of our favorite Southern artists who specialize in different styles of pet portraiture.
artist: Matthew Donovan
Using a technique he calls portrait fusion, Matthew starts with your favorite photograph, enhances the photo on his computer, prints the image on canvas, and then applies oil paints to create a truly unique piece of art. Believing that the eyes are the windows to the soul, Matthew strives to create timeless portraits that deliver that emotional feeling owners get by looking into their pets’ eyes. He’s happy to work with one of your existing photographs, or you can arrange for a photo session in his South Carolina studio. Prices start at $2,895.
