Are you one of those proud owners of irresistible pets? It could be a cat or a dog or even an iguana. It does not matter what pet or how many pets you own, they certainly bring joy and companionship to you. One of the best ways of celebrating your pets is by making pet portraits. You are likely to have countless pictures of your lovely pet or pets but what if you could make your pet portraits in a different medium, oil paintings? Would it not make a beautiful addition to your home décor?

Here are some quick tips for making the best pet portraits.

First you need to choose one of the best pictures from your collection of photographs. Instead of going through the old collections, you could take a new picture of your pet so that you do not have to worry about the quality of the picture. If you can find a high resolution picture in digital format, then you need not have to worry about the quality of the images that you send to the artists. It is not enough that you send a good quality picture to make your pet portraits but you should also make sure that you find the best artists to get the painting done.

It goes without saying that you should choose a close-up shot of your pet and preferably pictures where only your pet features. There is nothing wrong in creating a portrait where both you and your pet features. However, it is best to create pet portraits with just your pets in them. If you create a portrait just with your pet in the picture then you could even send it to pet portrait contests. One of the rules in all pet portrait contests is that only the pets should be featured in the portrait. You will unnecessarily miss your opportunity to take part in such contests.

If possible hire a professional photographer to take your pet’s pictures. This will help you get more captivating portraits of your pets. You can expect a good quality pet portrait only when you have an impressive pet picture and the best artists to create the portrait.

When compared to mounting just a photograph of your pet and creating an oil painting out of the same picture are totally different things. So do not settle just for a mounted photograph of your pets. It is worth the effort creating an oil painting portrait of your pet. When compared to mounted photos, oil paintings will have longer life span. The value of your pet portraits will increase with time but that is not the case with the photographs.

Get started right away. Think of creative ways of taking pictures of your pet so that you could come up with a brilliant pet portrait of which you could be proud. Hand painted pet portrait will certainly be a gift to the whole family. It is time to create your pet portrait.
