Original Pet Portraits and Animal Art from Art by Karie-Ann

Pastel and pencil pet portraits from photos enable stunningly accurate animal paintings, people, pet portraits and wildlife art to be recreated from your favourite pet photographs and images. Each pencil stroke captures the finest of details, ensuring a life-like treasured keepsake is created. Individual hairs in fur and hair are detailed and an animal or people portrait in pencil becomes a truly realistic glimpse back to fond memories and times past. Long after your children have grown up and flown the nest or after a beloved animal has passed away, pastel pencil art is a remarkable way of remembering those special moments in time which would otherwise have faded away as distant memories. If you are looking for a gift for a loved one or a unique piece of artwork, then look no further, you have arrived at the world of pencil art. I will produce portraits for you from your images, an exact recreation for you to keep. You can view the animal paintings progress, make comments and offer advice to ensure it is perfect and lives up to your expectations. In our very busy lives, we are sometimes lucky enough to own the pet of a lifetime, that constant companion you just cannot imagine being without. Unfortunately time passes and we lose our beloved friend, but why not have a beautiful pet portrait painted to ensure your memories do not fade with time but instead remind of all those wonderful moments you had together. I create pieces of art to treasure forever of something very personal and dear to you.
