Franca’s Story

Franca has two adorable dogs, and she was looking for a way to get a beautiful painting of them. So, she decided to turn to Paint Your Life. She submitted a photo of her dogs to our artists. After a short amount of time, the painting was completed and sent to her.

Franca had this to say about the painting and her experience, “When I submitted my photo, I didn’t know what to expect. I’m glad I took the chance! When I saw the painting of my two dogs, I was completely speechless! The painter captured their personalities to a tee, and I just can’t stop looking at it!”

Franca was tremendously impressed with the quality that the Paint Your Life artists were able to deliver. The artists that we have on-staff are remarkably talented, and they are able to capture every single detail that is in the photo that they are presented with. So, they can deliver you an incredibly life-like animal portrait on canvas.

Choosing the Right Photo

If you would like to have an animal portrait done by a Paint Your Life artist, then you need to select the photo very carefully. This is because if you choose the right photo, you will most likely be happier with the result. If you cannot choose between a few different photos, then you can send up to three, and our artists will select the one that he or she believes will work the best.

If you need some feedback about which photo to choose, then you can ask your friends or family members to help you choose. Usually, a little feedback from people you trust can be extremely beneficial.

How to Start Painting on Canvas?

Oftentimes, our clients are so impressed with the results of their paintings that they decide that they would like to start painting on canvas too! If you would like to start painting on canvas, then the first thing that you are going to need to do is to buy some canvas. There are two primary types of canvas, linen, and cotton. Linen is more expensive. So, since you are a beginner, cotton should be the option that you choose.

Next, you are going to need your paint and your brushes. You should also get a smock, which can be just a large old shirt that you don’t care about anymore. This is because while you are painting, you will most likely get some paint on yourself. You can pick up paint supplies at a store likes Michael’s or a local art supply shop.

Once you have your paint, your canvas, your smock, and your brushes, you are ready to go. You can just open your paint and start painting. Once you are done, make sure that you have a safe space for your canvas to dry where you know it will not be knocked over.

Decorate Your House in Style
