How To Commission A Portrait

It’s really simple to get your own unique portrait of your pet.

I will need at least three good quality photographs of your pet, these can be emailed, sent in the post in a digital format such as a disk or memory stick or sent as original photographs.

It is also very helpful if you can email me a description of the character or your pet as this will also inspire your portrait.

I will ensure that extreme care is taken with any original photographs and they will be securely returned to you by a signed for post.

The next step is to choose the size of portrait you would like. I am able to be commissioned to paint to any size but the normal size I work in are

Small (a little larger than A5), Medium A4, Large A3.

Once I have received your photographs I will contact you to discuss your portrait in more detail and it is at this point I ask for a 50% deposit. This can be paid by paypal, cheque or bank transfer.

I will keep in contact during the painting of your portrait and email you pictures of work in progress. When I feel the portrait is complete I will email you a copy of the portrait for your final approval and the remaining balance will be due.

Portraits will be carefully packaged and sent to you in a mount ready to be framed or I can arrange framing.
