Custom Dog Portrait Zentangle Acrylic Painting


Custom Dog Zentangle Painting

My Tangles are a bit of realism with a unique twist. Inspired by the patterns and ornate designs of zentangle and Native designs from around the world. I start by hand painting each animal with individual details, and keep them bright and fun with lots of color. Each pattern is done as I go creating each animals shape with twist and dots. I draw a lot of inspiration from Native Art of all kinds, the piecing of shapes to make an amazing painting that is unique to its region. I am inspired by the wonderful creatures of the pacific northwest where I call home, and the wild ones I have yet to meet.

Send me a picture of your furry friend and I will create a custom painting in my unique style. All paintings are hand painted by me in acrylic on either Wood Panels or Canvas. Backgrounds can be like the examples with the gradient lines or another of your choice.

* Can you spot the Names hidden within the tangles?? All portraits come with the option to add your furry friends names to personalize the painting even more at no extra charge. Just include any name in the note to seller when you check out!!!

I need a decent size picture as a reference photo, I can work off of multiple pictures wwq so no need to try and get that perfect pose. ( 500px x 500px minimum).
