Why not just take a photo?

Personalised Portrait - Different from a photograph because Lorraine works with just the image of the animal removing any background detail and shadows (as seen in this chicken picture) in order to make them the focus. Head & shoulders is her speciality but full body portraits can be quoted upon request. Utilising the plain background she will choose a colour to co-ordinate and contrast with the colours of the animal. A portrait is hand drawn with skill and precision bringing a 2D image into a 3D Masterpiece that's so real you'll want to touch it.  

Unique to you

Original Art - Hand drawn or painted 'originals' not prints. Each one is unique, no two are ever the same. Meticulously produced in great detail over a number of days, the reference material is carefully observed, the portrait is planned and built up layer by layer by Lorraine who takes great pride in each piece and is passionate about her art and the animals.


Choose your finished Masterpiece - Choose from either a soft pastel drawing or choose a vibrant acrylic painting in size A4 or A3 approx. Choose to have just the image only or to have it mounted ready for framing. Dimensions and colour-schemes upon request. (Framing is not standard but can be discussed.) Portraits are priced according to size, content and extra's such as additional animals, mounting etc. Postage & packaging are not included and will be quoted upon request. See 'Commissioning' page for more info.

Quality Materials Used

Professional Artist quality materials used -  Faber Castell Pitt pastel pencils, Sennelier or Rembrandt  soft pastel sticks on specialist pastel paper or velour/velvet paper. The image is 'fixed' with Winsor & Newton Professional fixative spray to protect it from smudging and to ensure longevity and to prevent fading. Winsor & Newton, Sennelier and Golden acrylic paints.
