Dalmatian Dog Portraits

Are you the owner of a gorgeous Dalmatian?

Have you ever considered commissioning an oil painting of your Dalmatians?  Here at Dog Artists we’ve recently been doing quite a few Dalmatian Paintings that we thought we’d share with you.  The oil painting of Darren the Dalmatian above was painted by Sam Banks, one of our top dog artists.

Below are 2 photographs of Dot and Dodger, what beautiful Dalmatians! These photos were then given to one of our dog artists to study and to base the oil painting on.

Portrait Artist's Materials







1.Email or post us your chosen photograph(s) that you would like us to work from with your chosen dimensions. If you are not sure about the size you’d like, just let us know and we’ll give you options and advice.

2. Let us know if you would like your portrait to be painted in water colour, oils (by far the most popular) or be drawn in charcoal or pencil.

3. Once we’ve agreed upon the size and taken note of any instructions or ideas that you may have, we will then commission your dalmatian’s painting.

4. When your artist has completed your dog portrait, we will email you a high resolution photograph of your oil painting for your approval.

5. If you require alterations, we will amend your dalmatian painting  according to your instructions. We want you to be delighted with your portrait!  Once finished we will then send you another high resolution photograph of your amended dog portrait.

6.  We at Dog Artists will then deliver your oil painting via special delivery to the address you’ve specified in a special secure art tube.  Your portrait will also be insured. Dog Artists will also let you know in advance when we are expecting to deliver your portrait and should you wish to opt for another delivery date, then please just let us know!
