Extreme Close-up Painting - Custom Pet Portrait Memorial Art
The Extreme Close-Up portrait... This kind of portrait allows me to get into the detail of the animal's fur and eyes. Your painting will be done in acrylics on stretched canvas.
My goal is always to improve on the photo, not just copy it. Please see my bio for credentials, and you can browse a more extensive portfolio at http://www.myanimalart.com.
If you're ordering from outside the US or Canada, please write me first and I'll give you a shipping quote.
Here's how this will work:
1 - Choose your size and send payment. I'll confirm and send you a convo.
2 - Send me photos of your pet, and tell me about their personality. Please try to send a variety - outdoors, indoors, flash, no flash. The more, the better, but I'd like at least 3-5. Photos with good natural light and no flash usually lend themselves best to a painting, but I use the rest for reference. Some people send me links to their instagram, flickr or facebook albums of their pets. That works really well. If you have a preference on which photo to use, let me know.
3 - I begin work on your painting. Because of the custom nature of this painting, once we have come to an agreement on which pose we're using and my work begins, I'm unable to give any refunds. BUT...
4 - Rest assured, I will send you progress photos along the way for your approval - one with the compositional layout and basic light & shadows, and one final. After each progress photo is approved, that particular element cannot be changed without incurring an additional fee. Once I begin work, the painting will take between 2-3 weeks depending on size and your timely approval.
4 - I allow the piece to dry, coat it with non-yellowing protectant, then mail it to you. I ask for about a week drying and finishing time, in general. We'll discuss when the time comes.
Thanks for reading all that, and I really look forward to "meeting" your beloved little guy or girl!
