Because I like to get to know your pet while I'm doing their portrait, I usually start by asking a few questions about them, and about your lives together. I will also ask a few questions about your color preferences and home decor so that I can create a work that you will be happy to live with.
I can work from your clear photos or if possible, from photos I've taken myself. Any additional photos that reveal your pet's character are also helpful. I always take into account your preferences for pose when I choose which photo I will base the artwork on.
I usually take a couple of weeks to complete a drawing and from 1-3 months to complete a pastel painting. This is variable depending on schedule, workload, and the type of work you've commissioned.
