A hand drawn coloured pencil portrait of your lovely pet/s.
Next available date for custom work is Jan 2019
Our pets are part of our family and give us unconditional love. A pet portrait is a wonderful way to honour that relationship and they make beautiful gifts for someone special in your life with a beloved fur (or furless!) baby.
They are also never with us long enough and if your wonderful fur (or furless- all pets are equal!!) baby has crossed the rainbow bridge then pet portraits make a loving tribute.
All I need is a few good photos of your pet. The best photos are taken on a clear day, not too sunny, and in natural light. Try to capture all the parts of your pet you want included in the picture (no missing ears or tails!)
Better photos will result in a more realistic and detailed portrait so it’s really worth taking the time to get a great one but if your photos aren’t as clear as you’d like please still get in touch as there are often ways to work around it.
To order simply select the size and number of subjects and email your high quality images to [email protected]
Portraits are completed using lightfast Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on heavy weighted paper so your portrait will last.
Artwork will come complete with a card picture mount in the following sizes:
6 by 8 piece ~ 8 by 10 mount
8 by 10 piece ~ 10 by 12 mount
11 by 14 piece ~ 12 by 16 mount
They are posted via Royal Mail 1st Class recorded delivery to ensure they arrive with you safely in a timely manner.
Due to the nature of commissions I would advise you to contact me for availability if you require the illustration before a certain date
I will keep you updated on the progress of your commission giving you the chance to make comments and discuss possible changes you may feel are necessary to ensure you are completely happy with the piece.
Simply select the size and no of subjects you require to place your order. You can then email me your images and we can discuss any requirements you have. I will also confirm the start date for your commission.
Alternatively if you are not sure exactly what you want or you want something different to the menu options or you simply want to discuss things before you place your order you can send me a message to let me know what you want from your commission. I will then also confirm a date that I will be able to start your commission (this will be subject to other commissioned work but if you require a specific date please let me know and I may be able to work around it)
It takes me 2-5 days to complete a single subject portrait depending on size.
Commissions are non refundable once started but I will work with you to make sure you are entirely happy with what you receive
