Pet paintings especially dog portraits and cat portraits work very well as oil paintings. The fine detail of their fur when painted and the shine of the oils for the eyes really brings life to the composition. We have specialist pet portrait artists who focus on this specific portrait style to give the very best results time after time. See some pet portrait examples in our painting gallery page
