A good quality photograph will ultimately produce a good quality painting, the more details I can see, the more detail I can place in the painting. The best photographs are those taken in sunlight or natural light. Do not use a flash as this will distort the direction of light and dull the eyes, The eyes are the main focus of the painting. Photos taken from eye level are the best to work with.
This YouTube video explains the best way to photograph your pet :
It really depends on the amount of detail required and the size of the painting. For example the cat below has far less detail than the Schnauzer on the chair. Please email me a photo of what you would like painted and I'll be able to send you a quotation. The cat below is A4, I also do A3, the Schnauzer below is 70 cm x 50 cm. Postage is extra (unframed).
The cat above is A4, which is a head shot. The most popular average size is A3, from there I can paint any size you like up to 100cm x 70cm.
Terms & Conditions
All commissions require a 50% deposit before work commences, with the balance payable on completion and to your satisfaction. I will email you photos of the painting throughout the process to ensure you are happy, and adjust the painting as required.
