THE PAINTING PROCESS by Jackie Jacobson
An expressive painting is much more colorful, and more abstract. Each brushstroke and area of color is painted over and over until it really does becomes a contemporary masterpiece. VanGogh colors and David Hockney’s many styles of painting, have been the inspiration for this style of my painting.
I was classically trained as a portrait painter, so all of my paintings are considered portraits. I use your photos but crop the picture to make the best possible portrait of your pet’s personality. All of my paintings are square in dimension and are painted on the background color of your choice.
My preference is to paint one pet per canvas. I believe I can really capture the personality of your pet with just one to a canvas. When most people see the painting they gasp with excitement. But if you really want more than one pet please email before placing an order. Email: email@example.com
The original artwork from your photo is a digital hand painting. Each stroke is painted by hand using a pen and a 27″ art tablet. The completed artwork is then printed on canvas (called a giclee print.) There is no automation used to paint your piece of art. All brushstrokes are painted by the hand of the artist exclusively.
The advantage of a digital painting is the ability to make multiple prints for you and other custom items from the finished painting. The file is saved and years later more custom items can be ordered, ie…ceramic coaster, ceramic trivets, coffee mugs and more
THE STRETCHED CANVAS
The canvas is mounted on 1-1/4″ deep wood stretcher bars. The painting wraps around the sides of the bars (called gallery wrap) and is ready to hang. It is hand signed Jacobson on the front and back side. I sign the back with the pet’s name and year it was painted.
