Commissioning

 

Commissioning a unique pet portrait crafted in pencil

Preparation and Consultation

Contact me to have an initial, no obligation consultation to discuss your requirements.

You will need to find or take some high quality, sharp photos of your pet and send me your chosen digital photos for me to view.

After viewing and further consultation with you, the agreed photo will be selected for the final portrait.


Choosing Photos

To ensure that the finished portrait is of the highest quality and will provide the best result it is important that I start with the best quality reference material as possible.

Choose photos that illustrate the character or personality of your pet. Providing a range of photos will give me a better insight into your pets character.

The photos should be of high resolution and show detail very clearly to give the best results. (see example of ‘Jessie’ to the left)

I am happy to advise on the best kind of photographs to provide or what to do if you do not have digital originals.


PRICE GUIDE:

Image size 7’ x 9” (approx.) on A3 heavyweight cartridge paper

Single subject:                    From £250.00

Each additional subject:    Add £100.00 (Composite image)

Pricing, budget and size will be discussed during your initial consultation.

I will take a small agreed fee on acceptance as a deposit (minimum £30), with the balance payable on satisfactory completion prior to despatch.


Viewing for Approval & Final Payment

Once the basic detail of the portrait is completed I will send an initial proof by email for your to check, assuming there are no changes I will continue to complete the finer detail.
Once your portrait is complete, I will send you a final image to ensure you are totally happy with what I have created for you.

Once you are happy with the result I will then accept the final balance payment for the work, via bank transfer, cheque (or cash if collecting).


Despatch

Once final payment has cleared, I will arrange for the portrait to be securely and safely packaged and delivered to you.

Delivery prices depend on portrait size and destination.
