Step 1. Photographic reference photos will be required, preferably around six images depicting your pet from the best and most representative angles. (I can come and photograph your pet myself, if you are in a convenient location.)


​Step 2. You will need to decide what size you will want the final piece to be. As these are produced as digital artwork it is important to know from the outset as over-enlarging a digital file can produce unwanted 'pixellation' or blurring.


Step 3. We will discuss your pet and the best way to portray them. From this discussion a sketch will be produced to show the pose and layout for the portrait. We can also discuss the finer details including painting style and possible backgrounds for the portrait. (The above images show examples of backgrounds used in previous commissions).


​Step 4. The final portrait will be produced as a digital file in colour to an agreed size and printed digitally onto a canvas.
