Pet Portrait Order Process

    1. Submit Order and non-refundable 25% down payment.
      The final painting will be the artist’s interpretation of the subject based on the pictures and information provided by the customer.
    2. Submit Photo References.
      The customer will supply the photo(s) of the pets that will be used for the portrait along with as much detail as possible about what they want their portrait to look like.
    3. Confirm Order and Approve Study.
      The artist will create a rough drawing and studies for the customer to review, suggest changes and approve. All design changes should be made at this point. When the pet portrait is completed, the artist will send a digital proof of the final painting for the customer’s approval. Reasonable alterations can be made at this point. These studies are not included in the painting commission.
