The portrait process starts with a good photograph that captures the character and personality of your dog. It’s preferable for you to select about 5 good photos for me to work from. Send these to me by email, along with a brief character description of your dog. A few lines will give me an idea of their energy and temperament.

The next step is for us to talk over your preferences and select the most suitable photograph, composition and size. I will then request a 50% deposit from you, with the balance due on completion.

Drawings evolve over several sittings as I like to return to the work and see it afresh a few times before I'm satisfied.
