How it works........
1/ Just contact me with through my website or Facebook messenger.
2/ I will then ask you to email your photos with a brief explanation of what you want. ie Size, medium, and your favourite photo/pose if more than one is sent. Also your address (for quoting in the correct currency and carriage charges) and the date the portrait is required for.
3/ I will then email back a proposal with a 'mock up' image showing  size, colours, payment terms etc.
4/ I will make amendments to the proposal if required.
5/ When you are happy with the proposed portrait I will start once the booking fee is paid .
Photographs are best.........
taken at eye level and with detail. The light is fairly even so that both sides of Granville can be seen and his eyes are visible.

 It may also help to provide more than one photo so that fur patterns and colours can be seen clearer...
When it comes to pet portraits...the better the photo is, the clearer the detail, the easier and better the finished painting will be. These are some examples of the good...and to work from. So rather than these..............
Granville is looking down here and is moving so he is blurred. It is always best to be able to see the eyes and for the photo to be clear.
The photo is looking down on Granville and is very dark, with no detail on one side. .
Bob is too far away and if the photo is enlarged the image could become pixilated with lack of detail.
