The Journey

Once we’ve agreed on the most suitable photos to use as reference, I will begin to create a portrait that truly represents your pet. After all, there’s little point in commissioning a portrait if the resulting piece doesn’t truly look like your beloved pet. I always like to begin with the eyes, as so much character lies there. Having begun with the eyes, the rest of your pet emerges; from the nose and beyond so that you have a piece of fine art that brings your pet to life right there on the page.

And remember, as your portrait comes to life, you will receive regular live updates to ensure you are happy with the progress.
