The kind of paw-sitivity and happiness a dog brings, it is needless to say why handmade dog portraits have become one of the most cherished pieces of art.
To honor our brave hearts with their wet nose, PortraitFlip has come up with the beautiful idea of creating handmade dog portrait paintings.
Portraits mean efforts. It always has a sentimental value attached to it and even though your dog wouldn’t probably recognize this effort, he deserves it.
Your fur-frenzy, four-legged ball of affection is not going to be around you for a long time and dog portraits are the best way to seize the bond that you share with your fido.
“A portrait is like an ornamental headstone. It is not for the subject, but for those who look upon it. For those you want to remember.”
Handmade Dog Portraits: The Kinds
Considering the kind of fickle-minded humans can be, one can never come up with an exact theme or idea for a dog portrait.
Amidst thousands of photographs together, some lost, some blurred, one can hardly decide.
To make things a little easier for your PortraitFlip has divided handmade dog portraits into four kinds.
1. Memorial Dog Portrait
It can be really hard to get over the loss of a dog with every corner reminding you of him.
This one is to honor the ones we have lost forever.
A memorial dog portrait will not only help a grieving dog-ma and paw heal but will also crystallize the lost one’s memory forever.
2. Compilation/Merged Dog Portrait
As restless as dogs can be, it can be a task to have all your dogs in a frame without one of them messing up.
This one is for dogs who have never learned to sit quietly.
A compilation/merged dog portrait gives dog-parents the chance to make a compiled different dog photographs into one portrait.
This way you save yourself some energy organizing them.
Since the artist makes it from the scratch, it looks almost like they were captured together.

You have the upper-hand while selecting the dimensions, mediums, frame, or any other specification here and there.
This one is for the wants-personalization-in-every-think kind.
Handmade Dog Portraits: The Mediums
Contrary to the beliefs, a portrait is not always black and white. There are mediums in art and you need to wear a creative hat to decide one for your dog portrait painting.
Have you ever wondered how your active, always sparky, pooch would look in a monochrome portrait? Dull right?
Thank god PortraitFlip has mediums!
