one of a kind pet portraits
Step 1: You find your favorite photo of your pet and email it to me in JPEG format. I will send you a cost estimate based on size, background detail required and time frame. A 20% deposit will be required before I begin the piece. I can work with several images to create the perfect composition for you. In the example below, Fiona’s mom wanted the body position in the first image, but the expression in the second image.
Step 2. The process begins. First I make a few sketches working with the parameters you give me ie size, background detail etc.
Then the painting begins. I start with an underpainting of blacks and grays for shadow and slowly build the color on top.
Step 3. Once the painting is completed I will send you a photo of the piece for your final approval. If it is exactly what you wanted then I will sign the piece and deliver it to you! Remaining payment due upon final approval.
