What Medium do you use to make my Pet Portrait?

My normal medium for Black & White drawings is either pencil or a combination of pencil and charcoal. My full color pieces are done by under laying a pastel foundation then applying a combination of watercolor pencils and color pencil technique to give vibrant colors with sharp details. Illustrations may be done from your photos or ours. I can use copyrighted photos only with a photographer's release. Such a release is normally given at no charge upon request. (Copyright release must be included with the request).

For full color work my medium is a mixed medium of pastel, and watercolor pencil. This mixed medium allows for the color vibrancies of watercolor with the detail that brings you pet's portrait to life on paper.

How long will it take before I see a proof of the final art?

For black and white orders from January till June, normal turnaround is about one week. For full color pet portraits about 15 days. From June thru December, turn around can be somewhat longer. A 50% deposit is required with the balance due at completion.

How can I approve my pet portrait?

A minimum of two or three shots is preferred, as it will increase our ability to capture expression. Options for ordering are on our online store. Prices there are for one subject.

Can I make changes?

Absolutely. That's why we send a proof. We want you to be happy with the finished piece. Three adjustments may be made at no charge. Sometime we need to make a minor adjustment, since sometimes a photo misses a little feature that makes them yours.
