PLEASE NOTE:

Please contact me prior to purchase to book the next available time slot for your portrait. My schedule is often booked out several weeks in advance, but I am sometimes available for quick turnarounds. The final piece of art will be signed and dated with the year.

All you need to do is... email me a photograph to kimberley.dewhurst@outlook.com

The best portraits are of the face so that you can get as much detail as possible, if you take a close up photograph in good quality lighting. 

PHOTOGRAPH REQUIRMENTS:

1 x Photo of the pose you would like the animal to be positioned. 

Any other additional photographs of the face are welcome Ideally in high resolution. 

The higher resolution of the photograph the better, this will enable me to draw the portrait more accurately and with a high amount of detail. 

DRAFTS:

Once you have sent me your photographs I will prepare a draft for you on photoshop using the photographs you have provided. In this draft you will see the proportions of the portrait on the page/size you have chosen. If there are any changes you would like to make to the draft this is the time to discuss it, any changed after this point will be very hard to change, pencil is an unforgiven medium and once its on the page its hard to remove. Only minor tweaks may be possible. I then use the draft to create the drawing, I made every detail on the draft to create the finished piece.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

In order to book you will be required to pay a deposit of £50 or a 50% deposit for commissions over £250. The remainder of the balance will be due two weeks before I start the commission. This is also the deadline for photographs to be sent over. 

Unfortunately refunds are not accepted, You are accepting that I am an artist and will try and represent your animal to the best of my ability with the use of your photographs. Please look through my other work created recently to see if you happy to proceed with a commissioned piece. 


COPYRIGHT:

I own the copyright on all my drawings, please do not reproduce the drawing without permission. I hold the right to reproduce the drawing for advertising purposes, prints, greeting cards and coasters. Please let me know if this is something your expressly don't want so we can discuss options.
