Paintings are original acrylic on canvas and are based completely on the photo provided.
The first step in the commission process is to choose a really great photograph. The photo should have good lighting and be very clear and focused. It should be taken at the dog’s eye level.
It is especially important for a very dark or black dog to have the sun or a flash hitting directly in the face or just off to the side. This will help to enhance the details.
Head shots lend themselves to expressing the most personality, but a great pose can make a very interesting painting and if the photo is not a close-up I can crop it.
The best photos are those that show who your pet is to YOU; drooling mouth, hanging tongue, laying with back on the floor, or lolling on a favorite chair.
