I am now taking commissions for custom pet portraits.
Mediums : Colour pencil, graphite pencil, watercolour
I have included information here to help you to know the process.
1. The first step is to find suitable photos. Good, clear photos are very important when commissioning a pet portrait. Clear sharp photos will provide the most detailed portraits. I will email you once you order, to get these.
2. Once I have receive your photos, we can discuss your options for the portrait. Whether you would like me to add or omit anything from reference photo/s. When all of the details have been confirmed and finalised, I will begin on your portrait. There is usually a waiting list but I will let you know when it should be completed by. If you need it for a specific date, please EMAIL me first. But usually allow up to 2-3 weeks.
3. As I am drawing your portrait, I will send you updates so you can see some of the progress and when it is complete, I will send you a proof to approve before sending. Please remember, due to the media, only small changes can be made at this point.
4. Once your portrait is complete, I will spray with fixative and put into a protective sleeve and send it flat in a sturdy envelope. All parcels within New Zealand are sent with tracking. Shipping is flat rate for all areas. **Please contact me if you live in a Rural Area before ordering**
Attached are a few recent pet portraits I have done.
If you would like to pay in instalments, please contact me and we can work out a timetable for this. However a 50 % deposit is required for me to begin.
