Note on photographs: without excellent quality photographs I cannot paint your portrait. I need to see detail as well as colour so ideally I need multiple photographs taken outside in natural light. Natural light is very important for reality and depth of colours. I will need a front on headshot as well as a profile side on headshot, plus at least one full body shot. Even if I am not painting a full body portrait it is still useful for me to get an idea of your pets full body proportions. I also like to know name, gender, breed & age so please include this information for me when you email your photos. Please use your order number as a reference when you email (this will be generated when you checkout) and send your photos as large a files as you can. If there is a particular photo that you want me to work from please make that clear when you email me otherwise I will choose the photograph that I think will make the best portrait. I reserve the right to not take your commission if your photos are not good enough to work from.
