What’s involved

Step 1 – “Say cheese”

The first step is for me to meet your pup and take photos. I usually draw from my own photos, this gives me the opportunity to get to know and fall in love with your dog. I usually spend between 1-2 hours taking the photos. All photos taken will be made available to you as part of the art work and I use Dropbox to get them to you. Your pup will have a lot of fun at the photo shoot because there’ll be lots and lots of treats.

Step 2 – Committing to a photo

I go home and look at the photos and choose the top five which inspire me as the artist and which I think portray your beloved pooches personality. I’ll send you a link to the dropbox and I’ll e-mail you the top 5. Together we agree on the best one to proceed with.

Step 3 – Let the drawing begin, sharpen those pencils

This is when I now go away and spend some quality time starting into your fur babies eyes. From this point on you won’t hear much from me. This part of the process takes roughly 10 hours but between teaching and my other commitments those 10 hours are not necessarily consecutive. Depending on my other commitments this step can take between 1 or 2 months, but I will advise once the photo has been selected.

Step 4 – Delivery woohooo

Your portrait will be delivered in a cellophane protective sleeve with

a plain white matt that will fit easily into a standard 18 by 20 inch frame from any retailer.
