Portrait styles

Marjolein is best known for her commissioned realistic pet portraits. In addition, she also paints symbolically or more spiritually. If you want to order a portrait of your pet, you can also choose a style in addition to the choice of material. See more examples of spiritual style animals here. This is also possible for your pet!

Whichever style you choose, Marjolein always designs the portrait first before executing it. You will receive this sketch by e-mail, so that you know what to expect.


Symbolic or Realistic:

The three dogs below and the foal are an example of a ‘spiritual portrait’. This portrait style can be ordered in oil or pastel – or – like these two digitally painted and printed portraits. The cat next to it is a realistic portrait in oil paint. See the full pet portfolio for this.

Spiritual pet and dog portraits on commission - Marjolein Kruijt

A soul portrait of your pet is also possible. These arise from meditation and then digitally designed or painted as desired. These are very comforting portraits in memoriam or beautiful as a fantasy painting.
