Paint Your Pet
Paint Your Pet Party
I’ve never painted before. Can I do this?
Believe it or not, I’ve had people who have never painted before come and finish a pet portrait.
Look, don’t expect to just finish in an hour without breaking a sweat. Erin’s going to take you out of your comfort zone. With a few jokes, some swear words and a great attitude, you’ll be able to do it.
Whether you think you can, or you can’t — you’re right. - Henry Ford
How does this work?
1) You send Erin the best photo that you have of your pet.
2) Erin creates an outline for you to work with.
3) Erin guides you through the painting.
So, is this a paint-by-numbers thing?
You’ve got the right idea, but not quite. We’ll explain it to you when I’m there, or you can watch one of my Tuesday Pet Portrait Facebook livestreams to see the process.
How many people?
There is a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 20 for Paint your Pet parties.
Do we all paint the same animal?
No! You can paint your own pet!
What supplies are included?
We will be using:
Artist Quality Acrylic paint
Synthetic Acrylic Brushes
11 x 14 canvas*
Cup for water
11 x 14 canvas - will have the image of your pet sketched out ahead of time and numbered to make it easy to reproduce the image of your pet!
How Will it Turn Out?
This is Sheri's dog, Ben. She submitted the photo and I cropped it closer to Ben's face. I transferred it over to the canvas and she painted it in.
The better a photograph, the better the result.
How can I take a good photo of my pet?
Get low - get on the floor or ground on your pet's level
Portrait shots are the easiest
Use treats your pet to sit still and look at you
Get good light - Take your photo during the day or outside
Have a professional do it!
