If you are interested in commissioning a portrait of your pet I hope the information below will be helpful. To find out how much a portrait would cost please see the Prices page. If you have any questions the Contact Me page has details of how you can get in touch.
A beautiful, lifelike portrait of your pet from your photos!
Your pet portrait will be hand drawn and hand painted directly from your photos.
I need a good clear photo to use for the main pose. If you have any additional photos please also send them as they may show your pet’s features in greater detail.
If you would like more than one pet in the portrait you can send separate photos of each pet and I will put them together. I will do an outline drawing from the photos then I’ll email you a photo to ensure they are all in proportion.
You can email your photos or put them on a disc and send them by post. If you decide to email the photos please email them at full resolution or ‘original size’. If sending photos through the post please make copies and send registered post. I will return any photos you send when the portrait is finished.
Your Pet Portrait
Your pet portrait will be painted on pastelmat paper using a combination of soft pastels and pastel pencils.
I will keep you updated on how your portrait is progressing so that any adjustments can be made along the way.
Once the portrait is finished I will email a photo for your approval. If you are completely happy I will then ask for payment before sending you the completed portrait.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
