Animals are so much more to us than a pet, they are loyal companions and part of the family and as such, make lovely subjects for a portrait. Your portrait will be thoughtfully created with their unique character and personality in mind to provide a lasting memory to cherish.
Portraits can be commissioned as a monochrome charcoal drawing or coloured pastel.
Commissioning a Pet Portrait
How to Commission Your Portrait
Example of a client photo
Should you wish to take new photos of your pet or choose from existing photos, this handy PHOTO GUIDE will help you get the best photo of your cherished companion.
Clear photos are the best to work from but they are not always possible if your pet has passed or if they are particularly fidgety!
If you are not sure, you can send me your favourite and several other photos of your pet and I can offer advice.
Choose your photo
Example of drawing process
i.e. half head, head and shoulders, full body or multiple pets/people. You can view the options and prices here.
When you are ready to request a commission, contact me here.
I will connect and request details of your order and ask you to tell me about your subject e.g their name/names, their personality, any funny or special stories and their breed if they are a pet. This helps me to connect with the subject on an emotional level while I’m drawing. At this point, I will ask you to send some photos.
Once we have found a photo that I can produce a high quality portrait from, I will send you an order confirmation, times scale and terms and conditions. To place your order and secure your spot in my client waiting list, sign and return the confirmation email and pay a £50 deposit.
Payments can be made via bank transfer, PayPal or cheque (your place will be secured once the cheque/payment has cleared).
Think about the type of portrait
Example of a finished portrait
When the portrait has been completed, you will be sent a copy for approval by email with the option of making any adjustments and alterations as far as the artist is able, in line with the original portrait expectations agreed upon. Once any adjustments have been made and portrait has been approved, an invoice for balance will be sent via email. Full payment plus any shipping charges must be received before artworks are signed, carefully packaged and shipped.
Look out for your finished portrait!
You can order industry standard Epson Professional Giclée prints of your portrait at the same time. For prices click here.
