Custom Pet or Wildlife Portrait - Small Watercolor Painting


ACEO and 5x7


Small Original Animal Watercolor 5" x 7" or ACEO (2.5" x 3.5") Painting, Made to Order.

This is a made to order painting. This listing can be purchased, but the shipping time may vary from 1-3 weeks. Please message me if you are interested.

Custom small paintings are painted on 140lb cold press watercolor paper. ACEO can be painted on 300lb watercolor paper. (Please let me know what size you would like for your painting: the 5" x 7" or an ACEO collectors size.)

This listing is for one original watercolor custom painted from a photo provided by the client. This is for a single animal painting in a semi-realistic to loose style. All of the examples on this listing are actual 5" x 7" (folded) birthday cards. The Sea Turtle was painted on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed watercolor paper and then applied to Strathmore Watercolor Cardstock. The Sea Turtle is also an example of "Line and Wash" watercolor and ink technique.


I will ship USPS. I prefer Priority Mail. If you want a different service, please convo me before paying and I will set up a custom listing.

How it works:

I ask that anyone interested in a custom painting, send me a convo with your goals and a high resolution digital photo of the animal. You should hold the intellectual property rights to the photo. You are granting me the right to use it as a source for the artwork. All commission work must be paid for in advance. I will do a 50%/50% split for larger pieces - half before work begins and half upon completion. You will be sent a digital copy (with watermarks) to proof. If you do not approve the artwork, I will do what I can to meet your expectations. Since I do work full time and have a family, it may take 2-3 weeks for custom work to be completed. Once it is, any remaining balance must be paid before shipping. Commissions are not returnable/not refundable.

Quality Guarantee:

I use only artist grade supplies and surfaces. All paper will be artist grade and archival. I will send you a proof to approve the painting before you make the final payment.


Please note that I reserve the right to display copies of my work done on commission as part of my portfolio and listings. I retain copyright of the "artwork." You will receive an original work of art. I will not post any photos of any commission work on social media until after it has shipped to the client. If you prefer to keep all images private, you must convo me in advance. My work is not for the client's commercial use.
