Choosing a photo

Firstly, you need to choose a photo of your subject that best captures their personality. But it is very important to choose a photo with good quality. Sunshine on the fur and clear eye details create the best portraits. When getting in contact I can help chose the best photo from an artist perspective. On the odd occasion I can merge photos to create one portrait but this cannot always be possible.

 

Photos must be taken by the client. If the photo has been taken by a professional photographer, I will need written proof to use the image.

(This is a good example of the photo quality required)

How to book in

Secondly, once you have chosen your image you need to choose which size would be best suited. Again, I can offer guidance if needed.  When booking in please allow sufficient time if the artwork is needed for a deadline (such as Birthdays). Portraits can take 1-4 weeks roughly to complete however my commission slots do get booked in advance. Therefore, get in touch promptly to avoid disappointment. 

If so, I require a non-refundable £100 booking in deposit to secure your place. Until this has been received, I cannot secure your place in my diary.

Payment

Before booking in please read through my term and conditions (listed at bottom) which we can only proceed if they are accepted by the client. The deposit will be subtracted off final payment. The final payment will be required once the initial outline has been sketched out ready.

Artwork progress to the finished product

Before starting your portrait, I will contact you to check your still happy with the choice of photo and size of portrait.

I will send progress photos of the artwork coming together. As an insight to see how the product is made but can be kept a secret for a big reveal at the end if best suited. If the commission is for a birthday I will check if it needs to be kept a secret from my social media pages so not to ruin the surprise.

Once complete and the client is happy the portrait will be mounted then sent next day delivery.

Prints of the original artwork can be made for an additional fee. I will need to know before the artwork is sent as the prints are colour matched to the original.

I retain the copyright to all artworks created, and can re-produce or use the artwork how I see fit. Customers do not have the right to reproduce any artworks. If this is an issue, please let me know before paying your deposit.
