Reference photographs

The most important thing I need is one very good, bright and clear photograph of your pet, but more is better. I prefer to work from a few photos at the time, because it gives me a better sense of how the subject really looks. So if you have more, please choose few of the best. Other suggestions (subjects personality, background colour etc.) are welcome.

All the portraits presented in my gallery are referenced by high quality photographs. I reserve the right to cancel your order if I receive poor photographs.

Waiting time

It depends on size, technique and work load. For pastel, pencil and digital it is a minimum of 2 weeks, for oils it is minimum of 4-10 months. I will send you a final scan of portrait for your verification. If you need the work to be finished as soon as possible, please let me know, I'll do my best. For really short deadlines (like 1 week or less) add 50% of total.

Payment

I require advanced payment of minimum 50% of final price before I begin. The balance you will pay after work is finished. You can also pay the total in advance. I accept payments via bank transfer or PayPal.

Delivery

I send my works via tracked post service. Every painting is protected by hard packaging against any damage. Delivery takes from 4 up to 14 business days, or more if overseas. Portraits are unframed, P&P may change when framed. The cost of international shipping may change at the moment of placing order due to frequent price fluctuations.

Additional animals

I charge less than half of base price (average 20%) for every additional animal on one portrait.

Framing

When painting is finished, you can choose suitable moulding to frame it, or you can let me choose. Price of the frame depends on size and chosen model. Due to weight of the frame and need of securing the glass, shipping cost will change. Maximum size available for framing is 20x16in (50x40cm).

Miscellaneous info
