How to order:
Use the Contact Form to contact me and I will write back with an address for you to send your photos.
After your initial enquiry we discuss your ideas and requirements. A deposit of $50 is required to start the painting.
Once the painting is completed, I send a digital copy to you for approval via e-mail. If any changes need to be made, I will make them happily. Once you are satisfied with the portrait, I ask for balance of payment, and once received the painting is shipped. Due to the delicate nature of pastel paintings, I prefer to send them between two pieces of MDF for protection. I ask you to PLEASE return the MDF and glasene paper to me (becasue the closest art supplies store is pprox100 k’ away from me) & I will refund half your postage cost. Otherwise, I can send the painting in a rolled-up tube.
Photographs sent by e-mail will be kept for future advertising if permitted, and the portrait copyright remains mine so that I can use it in the future for advertising. All photographs sent by post will be returned with the painting.

Please send carefully selected, clear photos of your pet. It is important to send as many photos as possible, to capture properly the colors and expressions and character of your dog. The better quality the photo, the better the painting.
When taking photos, try to get down to eye level with your dog. Do not take pics in bright sunny conditions, as shadows remove details. Try to avoid taking flash photos because they can be too harsh and change colors of the coat and eyes,. Try to fill the frame with your dog’s image. And do not use wide-angle lens, as this will distort the image.
