I use your photographs to produce my portraits and so they need to be good, sharp images especially around the eyes on a head shot, as this is where the character in my paintings comes from. I would suggest sending 2 or 3 head shots in different poses and if a full body portrait is required, then a few more of your pet standing, sitting, even sleeping – including your preferred shot for the painting. You can email the jpeg images to me, together with your instructions for the pose you would like me to paint.
I use very good quality art materials which produce vibrant paintings with a good depth of colour and the canvas will be sent to you ready for hanging on your wall. I can of course send the painting without fitted hanging loops and picture cord if you are intending to have the painting framed yourself.
Pastel paintings normally take about 2-3 weeks, acrylic paintings up to a month and oil paintings about 3-4 months (due to the drying time for oils).
A non-refundable 25% deposit is required with your order and the balance is paid on receipt of your portrait.
I look forward to hearing from you.
