How it works...

I would be delighted to create a portrait for you, commissioning a portrait is really easy, please see the steps below:

  • Only you will know the best characteristics in your pet so please take time to select your favourite photograph or alternatively take a photograph which shows their personality and character well.
  • If you are finding it hard to choose you can send me a few photographs and I can discuss with you the ones that would make the best images to create your portrait from.
  • The photograph must be clear showing the true colour of their fur and I must be able to see good detail in the eyes and on the nose.
  • If you need some help see guide on ‘How to photograph your pet’
  • Send your image(s) to beverley.sweetman@gmail.com
  • Think about what size you would like, taking in to consideration:

    • Wall space and where you think you would like to hang your painting. Sizes.
    • How much you would like to spend. Prices
  • A few additional details I will need to know please:

    • What is the deadline for when you need the paint for? 

    Please note ideally I need at least a 3 week lead time to create a picture, this could be longer if I have a number of paintings already booked in around the period you would like your painting finished. Christmas is a prime example when I would ask for a booking to be secured as early as possible, some people book as early as September.

    • Who is the painting for?
    • If your portrait going to be a surprise present for someone special will I need to be discreet when corresponding with you?
  • A deposit of 25% will secure the booking in my diary.
  • My paintings take many hours to produce, I never rush them or cut corners as the finished painting is something I pride myself in. 
  • My aim is to produce the best possible portrait for you from the photo(s) you send to me, I can only paint what I see.
    See guide on ‘How to photograph your pet’
Once I have started the painting I will send you regular updates of the painting as it progresses by one of the following methods:
  • Email
  • WhatsApp
  • Messenger
Finally I will email you a photograph of the finished painting for you to sign off prior to me asking for payment and sending off your painting to you.
