Pet portraits from your photographs
Many people ask me to paint portraits of their dog/s, cat/s, horses and even on occasion,
their prize racing pigeon. It appears that when they see the pet portraits I have painted in
the past they become enthusiastic about commissioning me.
I work from photographs. In the past I used to take those photographs myself but now I
ask the customer to provide them. The more photographs the better. I know how hard it
can be to take a good and usable photograph of say, young Fido or Fifi they never seem
to look at the camera at the time you press the shutter button. That is why I am writing a
help sheet (available soon) to give you some tips and tricks on taking good photos. I
draw in pastels and paint, usually in mixed mediums: acrylics, water colours etc. My
favourite is pastels. Prices are usually quoted per subject. So if there is more than one,
then my price will reflect that.
No customer to date as ever been disappointed with their commissioned portrait.
