In order to make a great portrait of your pet, I need good clear photos showing their correct coloring and their eyes, including eye color. I also need one showing the pose you prefer for your portrait. These will need to be emailed to me prior to starting your portrait.
A 50% deposit is required before starting on your project, with the balance due upon completion. You will receive at least 2 in progress emails before the portrait is completed, to address adjustments that may be needed. Please keep in mind, my portraits are not intended to be photo realistic, I prefer them to look like artwork, not a photograph (see my samples).
I use only color fast pencils for my portraits, on top quality, archival bristol vellum papers, so your portrait will stand the test of time. Finished portraits are given several light coats of a UV protective sealant to protect and preserve their colors. Finished portrait will be shipped flat, insured and carefully protected. It will be tape mounted on foam board, ready for matting and framing of your choosing.
Please contact me with questions or for more information, at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for considering me to immortalize your beloved pet in colored pencils.
