Your Photos & My Mock-ups

Your photos are the most important aspect when you commission your pet portrait, the quality of my work absolutely depend on them. The photos must be large, sharp and clear. I usually don’t have the opportunity to meet and photograph the pets I paint and draw in person and so I only have your photos to guide me. Your photos is key and the better quality photos I receive, the better your portrait will be. Choose some of the best photos of your subject or consider taking new ones if possible. I look at one main photograph when painting, but would love to have a choice of several photos in order to see the true appearance and coloring. Below you can see an example of how I created an oil painting from a photograph provided by the client and my own mock-up based on her requirements.

Painting Progress and Final Scan

You will be able to follow the painting progress On The Easel or via email and make suggestions as I'm painting or drawing your portrait. It is a very popular feature and it's the perfect way to keep you updated at all times. I photograph the portrait in various stages and post them for you to see how far I've got in the process. I scan the final portrait and post it in my blog to ensure that you are happy with the completed portrait. Even though your portrait is considered completed by myself, you can still request alternations. Satisfaction is guaranteed!
