For only £30UKP or $50USD, your favourite photo of a beloved animal companion can be turned into a beautiful portrait by Andrew Hinkinson. He uses a real brush (with magnetised carbon filaments in the hairs) on an iPad. The portrait above is of Cordelia, an ex-battery hen, and prints of this painting have been used to raise funds for the NI Battery Hen Rescue.
A traditional brush can no more paint on its own than an iPad can. It takes artistic talent and several hours to work on your painting. Andrew only ever focuses on one pet character study at a time.
There’s no postage or packing to pay, because your portrait is delivered by email. You get one copy for online sharing and wallpaper (a JPEG file) and a high-resolution copy (a PNG file) for sending to have printed to canvas, clothing, cups and many other items.
Want a portrait of your pet? Contact Andrew via the contact page on this site or the Facebook Pet Portraits For Everyone page, where you can browse a gallery of commissions and read testimonials from satisfied customers.
