Mini 3"x3" Whimsical Custom Watercolor Pet Portrait


Shipping to United States: Free

These mini 3" x 3" whimsical watercolor pet portraits make a wonderful gift or a treasured keepsake. Minis are perhaps one of my favorite types of illustration.

As @littlenakao from Instagram puts it “such big hearts captured in mini form.”

These original watercolor pet portraits offer a creative take on your favorite fur friend. I use watercolor washes to create texture and add depth. My pet portraits capture the distinctive traits and character of pets. The eyes are the heart of the artwork. I strive to capture their personalities through their eyes. A complimentary solid colored background will be included, unless otherwise noted.

This style of artwork is painted on a heavy weight cold-press, acid-free, watercolor board.

Mary Evelyn painted me a beautiful and incredibly accurate portrait of a friend’s dog. She perfectly captured his personality and the painting came quickly and so beautifully packaged as well! This one is a birthday gift for my friend but I’ll definitely be treating myself to a piece of her art in the future (and you should too!) :)

Love love love her work! You won’t be disappointed!! She’s quick, easy to work with and very concerned about customer satisfaction!

Wonderful as always! Mary Evelyn took the time to make sure the portrait was just right

Mary Evelyn was so easy to work with! Her work is absolutely beautiful and I’m so happy with the piece! Fast shipping too!

Could not be happier with my purchase. The painting was my dog captured in a mystical watercolor painting. The artist communicated with me through her process. I didn't think capturing her eyes with watercolor was possible, but she did! Can't say enough about this purchase.
