Working from Photographs

I prefer to work from one photograph in particular; however, you can send me several to get an idea of your pet. However, please make sure the photograph(s) is/are a clear representation of your pet. The higher the quality photograph, the better! I may not be able to work from blurred or very small photographs. I can accept real photographs by post (these will be returned with your commissioned piece) or by email (preferred).



Taking Clear Photographs

To get the best possible results when photographing your pet here are a few tips:

∑ Photograph your pet outside (or if thatís not possible, in a room well-lit with natural light). Relying on a cameraís flash can severely affect fur colour and cause strange coloured eyes.

∑ Take lots of photographs and choose the best few at the end.

∑ Get down to your petís level rather than looking down at them.

∑ Get a friend to distract your pet (as many just want to investigate the camera which results in shots of noses rather than good portrait photos!)

There are more tips for photographing your pets on Digital Photography Schoolís website.



Choosing your Medium and Paper

I work in a variety of sizes and mediums, please look at the sections on my website to see examples.

Typically paper sizes around A5 are only suitable for portraits (not full-body pictures) apart from in the case of very small pets like rodents).

For acrylic painted pieces I can work on canvas textured paper (suitable for framing), canvas panel (canvas with a hard backing) or stretched canvas (usually hangs as it is without the need for framing)

I have listed paper sizes I typically have available at any time. However, if you would like a size not listed please contact me and I can find out a price for you.



The Process:

After receiving the photograph(s) I will prepare a rough initial sketch. You will then be shown the sketch and decide if the picture/concept is progressing as imagined. I will then carry on, or adjust the picture as needed.
