artwork of your dog:
following information takes you through the steps needed
to achieve that special memorable portrait of your dog.
I work in pastel, acrylics and colored pencil. All art
materials I use are of the highest professional quality.
for colored pencil drawings and pastels are based on head
and chest compositions with no painted or drawn background.
Prices for painted backgrounds in acrylics and pastels
are based on the size of the painting. Simple backgrounds
work very well to maintain the focus of your dog.
will need to supply me with very clear, sharply focused
photos. Several photos are best, as I can get to know
your dog from these photos. Your dog's face is extremely
important to the portrait. When creating the portrait,
I need to be able to see your dog's eyes clearly. This
is critical to the finished painting.
I have the photos, I will keep in touch with you through
the whole painting process. I begin with a sketch, which
is e-mailed to you. Once you have approved the sketch,
I begin the painting or drawing. When I have completed
the painting, I will send a photo to you by e-mail before
it is shipped.
50% deposit is required to begin the artwork. Once I have
completed the work, the final 50% of the price is due.
All artwork is shipped by priority mail with insurance.
Payments can be made by PayPal, money orders, personal
checks, or Visa / Mastercard. Please allow time for personal
checks to clear.
