Hello Berna,
When my husband received his present he was speechless, he found it so beautiful.
Our grandsons, 2 and 3 years old, also said oh that's Indy right away.
So thank you again, it will get a special place in our living room.

Kind regards Anice (and Frank)

I am so very happy with this drawing in pastel. It was my last trip with Girly and Pablo to Austria together. It is really amazing how you have drawn every detail, no matter how small. Thanks Berna for another beautiful painting.

Berna has portrayed our 3 cats. And what a fantastic result! Like looking at a picture. Beautifully detailed and especially the eyes are very expressive and bring the drawing to life.
We have a beautiful work of art hanging on the wall that we enjoy every day. Berna is a real ART artist, a sweet, caring and passionate woman!

Hello Berna,
I received the painting of our Sam for my birthday through my sister-in-law, Linda.
We had to put our Sam to sleep on Christmas Day and that is why the painting you made of him is very special to us.
You have put it in a striking way and we recognize it out of thousands.
Thank you very much for making this special portrait of Sam.

Sincerely,
Klaartje

Dear Berna,
We have now received the Christmas ball with Gino on it. My girlfriend was moved to tears. He has become really beautiful.
Thanks for everything and maybe see you soon!

Dear Berna
As soon as we met you, we knew you have great capabilities.
We admired your work during one of your exhibitions and everything showed your excellent sense of detail, which is especially appealing in the images of loved ones.
We did not hesitate for a moment and immediately asked you to make a pastel drawing of our deceased dog Witchie.
The result is beautiful and therefore has a place of honor as shown in the accompanying photo.
All credit to Berna.

Dear Berna,
May I thank you again very much, also on behalf of my husband, for the beautiful Christmas bauble with our grandson on it, Denzel. Beautifully done.
Also 2 very happy parents, they were very wise with it. Highly recommended for anyone who has grandchildren. I also saw the pets you painted, very beautiful.


Sincerely,
Margriet Giel.

Every week when the Rembrand program is on television I think of you! Why don't you participate? In the meantime I have already had five “Lamers” paintings drawn. Panther, Loes, Moor, Droppie, Winnie, Vlekkie and Snuitje look at me every day. No photo can beat that. You can draw them so aptly in character. Class.

Dear greetings Ellie


 

I came into contact with Berna Lamers through Facebook. As a gift I wanted to have my 4 dogs (of which 2 have died) on a Christmas ball. Berna did this amazingly well. The individual characters of each dog are captured on each of the baubeles. A wonderful result!

Years ago, Berna already drew my dog ​​Lucky, a fond and lasting memory of my first dog.

This drawing is still so beautiful and striking that I did not hesitate for a moment to have my 2 current dogs Zoë and Timmie portrayed as well. And yes, they are striking again!And now I also have Zoë on a Christmas ball…. And again she seems to speak!!!
If I manage to take a nice picture of Timmie (he doesn't want to be in the picture so nice haha) he will also go on a Christmas ball….

I can really recommend you wholeheartedly, what beautiful portraits you make 😊

Greetings, Alexandra

What a surprise. Received the beautiful drawing today. And made so super fast too.
I am going to give this drawing to my caregiver. Just a nice frame around it, so she can hang it on the wall.

Hi Berna,
My husband received a present for his 60th birthday that he still looks at every day with great pleasure and that are 3 beautiful portraits of our treasures of grandchildren drawn by you ...
Thank you again for your wonderful work.

Greetings, Claudia


 

I came across Berna's beautiful work a few years ago..
I asked her to make 2 portrait drawings of my dachshunds.
In one word beautiful!! 2 years ago she also painted my dachshunds on Christmas balls for me. They shine on the table at Christmas!
She has now also drawn a portrait of my father on paper for me.
I find her work great, what a talent!

I found you by chance and when I looked at your work I was immediately convinced. You had to draw my Max. How special how similar you have drawn it in pastel! Really Max. I still enjoy looking at this painting every day.

Berna Lamers

Hello, my name is Berna Lamers. Drawing, painting and animals have been my greatest passion since childhood. I make realistic portraits of people and pets in commission for over 15 years with great pleasure and dedication. I strive to capture the heart and soul of your beloved pet or person in the portrait. Every portrait has a story and I am very grateful to be able to make it.

All my portraits are hand drawn or painted from photos using only the best materials. You can have a portrait drawn with pastel chalk or painted in oil or acrylic paint in any desired format. I also paint Christmas balls with a portrait or any other desired subject.

Would you like to have a portrait made or do you have any questions? Please feel free to send me a message. Together we can discuss your exact wishes and details of the work to be done. I like to hear from you!

How does it work?

I make the portrait in pastel or oil paint on the basis of a clear photo. The clearer the photo, the more beautiful the portrait will be! I prefer to work with a digital reference photo in a high resolution. It is also possible to have a portrait drawing or painting made from a passport photo. A passport photo is usually clear enough and appropriate. If your pet has passed away and you have no clear pictures, I will first see if I can make a similar portrait work from the available pictures. Different photos of pets and people can also be combined on one drawing or painting. In consultation, a sketch is drawn on paper in advance to determine the composition and proportions before starting the assignment. Send your photos in a large file by email. Please indicate with several photos which you prefer and what your further wishes are. After receiving your email I will contact you as soon as possible. Together we can discuss your exact wishes and details of the work to be made, such as choice of material, composition and the background color. I keep working until you and I are satisfied with the end result. 

 
Pastel drawing:

(Portrait) drawings are made on high-quality paper with pastel and pencils of the highest quality. The drawing can be in color, black and white or in sepia (brown tones) and size according to your wishes. I have a big variety of paper colors for you to choose from, and i'm always happy to help you choose or advice the most suitable color for the drawing. When the pastel drawing is finished, it will be treated with pastel spray and delivered with a passe-partout, and enclosed in a cardboard folder for protection. I can also frame the drawing for you, i have a variety of frames you can choose from, but i can also use a frame that you like and have chosen.
A pastel drawing must always be framed behind glass because of the vulnerability of this type of drawing, and to perfectly preserve the drawing for decades to come.

Delivery time for a pastel drawing is approximately four weeks.
 
Oil painting:

A portrait painting will be painted on linen and treated with varnish twice. A portrait painting is built up in several layers. Details can easily be added or changed on an oil painting. When the oil painting is finished, it will have to dry for another 3 weeks before being treated with retouching varnish. The retouching varnish allows oxygen to pass through, allowing the drying of the paint to continue unimpeded and the painting to be protected from dirt and dust. It takes about a year for the oil paint to dry properly on the linen. After that period the painting shall be treated once again with final varnish to preserve it, and to ensure it's longevity. For the final varnish you can choose from matte, gloss or high gloss.

Delivery time for an oil painting is approximately three months.
 
Hand-painted Christmas ball:

The Christmas balls are painted on the basis of a clear photo.
These Christmas balls are made of high-quality plastic and have a diameter of fifteen centimeters.
It can be further decorated with artificial snow and / or text of your liking.

It takes one week to create your hand-painted Christmass ball, depending on the amount of orders.
 
Payment and delivery:
Your assignment will be placed after a deposit of 10%, the remaining amount will be paid if the portrait work is completely according to your wishes.

You will receive an email as soon as I start your assignment. When the portrait work is finished, you will receive a clear photo for approval. You can of course also come by in person to view the result. I work with a satisfaction guarantee: the remaining amount will only be paid if you are completely satisfied, otherwise you do not have to take it. After receipt of payment, it will be carefully packaged and shipped by registered and insured mail with Post.nl. If you want to pick up the portrait work, you can pay in cash.
