Step 1:Contact me and I will help you choose a painting size and style to bring out the beauty of your pet.
Step 2:Send photo references. This can be done by email or USPS. Once we decide upon an image to paint, your payment of 50% of the total price will be due.
Step 3: When your painting is approximately 50% complete I'll send you a photograph of it and we'll discuss if revisions need to be made. If you are satisfied with the progress then your remaining balance is due upon completion. Step 4: Your finished painting can be picked up at my studio or mailed to you. Shipping and handling is approximately $30.00.
These are hand painted original works that take a lot of time and skill to complete. It takes approximately 5-8 weeks to finish a painting.
What is a Pastel Painting? Pastels are hardened sticks of colored pigment and are a dry form of paint. Pastels use the same pigments as oil paint but with a dry binder to hold it together rather than linseed oil used in oil paint. My pastel paintings are painted on specialized artist sanded paper. These paintings must be framed under glass like a watercolor painting in order to protect its surface.
