NEW! Original Art

Exceptional, original artwork at low prices!
I specialise in all manner of competitively priced, original artwork, in various media and sizes, either commissioned by members of the public to celebrate their pets, homes or bespoke and off-the-shelf original artwork that people can hang in their homes for a fraction of the price of gallery work!

I also provide an art and graphics tutoring service for all ages and abilities (which I also cover more here).

Below is a small example of my art commissions and off-the-shelf artwork. Please see my Illustration Portfolio for an idea of other illustration media I have used for graphics projects.

Superb value, exceptional artwork!

1. NEW! A fabulous Opportunity to own original fine art that doesn’t cost a fortune!
I have created a range of affordable, original artwork in graphite, watercolour, acrylics and coloured pencil that will be for sale for as little as £40! Supplied unframed and usually between A4 and A5 in size, these images look great when framed with a large, grey mount and oak frame. Produced using only the very best materials, some of the items currently on sale are shown below:


2. Fine Art Prints
Again using a contemporary, watercolour technique, I am creating a range of prints that I am releasing under a limited run of 150 per piece of artwork.

These will be produced on fine art paper, using pigmented inks, have a guaranteed lifespan of at least 75 years, personally signed by myself and have a certificate of authenticity. Starting at £29 per print, I am really excited to be launch this range! They will be also supplied unframed – to keep shipping costs down –  and enable the customer to choose frames to match their decor etc.

The Premium Range – Commissioned work
As these are purely ‘one-off’, original pieces, they are priced dependent on media, subject matter and size, so please contact me if you have a project in mind. Again, these are all produced using only the finest media and acid free, archival paper, these make exceptional gifts for the special person in your life or as a lovely treat for yourself!

Custom artwork: what would you like?
If there is any subject you would and like to commission, for example your favourite flowers, your home, a special car etc., please contact me for further details.

1. Premium Range: Pet Portraits – Coloured Pencil
This range takes considerably longer to produce and usually uses a combination of different artists’ coloured pencils as I feel that they help give vibrancy and life to the animal and help portray its character. The use of this media is very unusual – and can be extremely unforgiving – but it is essential to give the effect I want and clients appreciate. Prices start at £120.

These are supplied unframed. Please contact me for further information




2. Premium Range: Pet Portaits in Watercolour
As a pet owner myself, I understand the importance of pets and how much they mean to us, but also know how family budgets can be restricted at certain times.

With this in mind, I have now launched a new range of contemporary, watercolour pet portraits that are accessible to all. Using watercolour enables me to use a much more free and loose style but still enables me to capture the character of your favourite pet.

Starting at just £89 (a single portrait) you will receive original artwork, signed by myself with a certificate of authenticity. Please note: to keep costs low, these are supplied unframed.

Please note: all artwork is produced by myself, professional artist Carl Waine, and each original piece is signed by me, together with a certificate of authencity. They are produced to extremely high standards, take many hours to produce and are not to be confused with other ‘nameless’, lower quality pictures or prints.
