When placing your order its not essential but helpful provide 3 quality photographs indicating which is your favourite. Providing 3 gives me the ability to choose the one best suited but also gives me a better idea of your pets character and features. Its also great if you can tell me a little about your pet so i can do my best to capture a little of their personality.

Please when ordering, take some time looking at my many other works to get an idea of my style. Providing the go ahead on a portrait is based on the idea that you are familiar with my work and as an artist i will provide you with a piece that i feel is the best representation. In the event your artwork is completed and you are unhappy with the result and you wish to return the completed painting please discuss with the artist your reasons as it may be possible to alter some elements. In the event you are still wishing to cancel 20% of your cost will be returned to you with 80% kept by the artist along with the artwork.
Custom pet portraits are drawn from a photograph. The quality of the photo is important to be able to see the features, details and character of your pet.
When taking a photo of your pet consider what image you are trying to achieve. Would you like them sitting, laying down, walking, running, looking at the camera or off to the side. When using a phone or camera it often is a good idea to get down to their level. Natural light is important, try going outside for your photos. If the animal is still and there is good light you can get a good photo on a fairly standard setting but one trick i often use is to put a camera on auto and turn the flash on, even on a sunny day and this will light up their faces and show the detail. Give it a try!
Time taken to produce is often dependent on workload at the time. These drawings are produced in a much shorter timeframe than the oil paintings so it is often only a matter of days up to a couple of weeks. A clearer timeframe will be discussed at time of ordering.
I use black willow stick charcoal in various sizes for these portraits and i seal the surface with a spray fixative. The artwork is very expressive and has a great deal of energy.
(please note that the charcoal can still rub a little off the surface in the thicker areas. I recommend you do not rub or touch the surface and get it framed to protect it).

If you are planning on giving a portrait as a gift and your timeframe is short it is often a great idea to consider a voucher. This can also be an ideal way for the gift recipient to be a part of the process and choose an image they have a connection to.
