Over the years I have noticed that 8" x 12" (A4) or 8" x 10" works really well for a single portrait of a human or for a dog/cat. For horses, a minimum of 10” x 12” is recommended for a head/neck portrait.
Please note: the 6" x 8" size and 8" x 10" size will only accommodate a single animal.
If you are thinking of a bespoke size not listed above, please email me for a quote.
