A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your commission. The balance is to be paid when the commission is complete, you are happy with the work, and prior to delivery.
All prices include packing and delivery. Your picture will be mounted in acid free mount board ready for you to frame at home.
For Botanical subjects I work in both Watercolour and Coloured Pencil, using only the highest quality lightfast pigments. I use Saunders Waterford Hot Pressed paper which is acid free and archival. When booking your commission, we will decide together which medium works best for the subject.
For animal portraits I work in coloured pencil on Grafix Drafting Film. This is an acid free and archival surface that allows me to achieve great detail.
When choosing or taking a photograph, a detailed, high resolution image is essential for me to work from. For pet portraits especially, I need to be able to clearly see the features such as the eyes, direction of hair growth, and true colours. The better the image, the better your commission will be.
Things to avoid
- Dimly lit shots with too much shadow
- Over exposed images with too much light
- Photographs where the animal is too close or too far away from the camera
An example of a good image is the cat below. Lovely natural even lighting showing all the tones in the fur, great detail of all the main features with clear highlights in the eyes, and a nice pose.
How to Book
In the first instance, please contact me with your requirements. I aim to respond to all enquiries within three working days. I will then be able to give you a quote and a lead time for your project. I do have a wait list, so if your commission is a gift for a special occasion please bear that in mind.
Once I start work on your commission, I will keep you updated with progress pics throughout the entire process so that we can ensure you are happy with the work.
I post all my progress pictures on social media including Instagram and Facebook, I will always ask for your permission to do so first, in-case the project is for a secret present and you do not want to run the risk of ruining the surprise.
