How To Book
Bookings for 2023 are now available
If you are looking for a one of a kind watercolour portrait of your pet that you can treasure forever, as long as you have a good quality photograph, I am more than happy to paint them for you. By the end of the process, you will have a portrait of your pet and a one of a kind time-lapse of the whole process from start to finish. It all starts by sending me a message!
Send your Message
You can do this by filling out the 'Contact' form below or through any of my social media accounts. We can then discuss the size of your commission, costings, the image or images you want to use, orientation and address any other questions or requests you may have. I always urge clients to read my terms and conditions before organising a booking so they are fully aware of what the process entails.
When it comes to photographs, the more the merrier! This way I get a good idea of your pets colour and can make suggestions on which will be best image to work from. If you have a favourite photo that you would like me to use, by all means, please tell me, however please make sure it is good quality. By 'good quality' I mean, ideally, in natural lighting so I can clearly see eyes and fur colour, and crisp so I can see all the fur detail. Poor quality, pixelated photos may lead to a less detailed painting that may not truly represent your pet.
Confirm your Deposit
Once this has all been confirmed a non refundable 20% deposit will be taken vay PayPal or bank transfer (whichever is easiest for you) to add you the bookings list. Please note this deposit has to be made before any artwork is done. Once your deposit is received, I will organise drawing you up a rough sketch from the agreed image for you to ok before I put it aside for painting.
I'll Start Painting
When it is time for me to start painting your commission I will send you update photos so you can see how your painting is coming along. I will also take a timeplase video of the entire process so you can see how your portrait has come together, from start to finish. Please be mindful that this will my interpretation of your pet and I will be working as closely to your photographs as possible, however it is not a photo replica.
Once your commission is complete and you are happy with the final image, the remainder of the payment will be requested before sending you the finished artwork. This must be paid in full before I send off any artworks.
Your finished artwork will be sent properly packed in a sealed waterproof cover that will be wrapped and protected by cardboard and sealed in a hard backed envelope to keep your portrait flat and prevent bending. Postage is included in the cost of the portrait and all are sent special delivery before 1pm to ensure they arrive with you safely and do not get lost.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to send me a message!
