Animal Commissions

Are typically of head and shoulders with an abstract background.

 

Whatever your preference, simple or

fully detailed, Kate will work to your budget and specifications to create a stunning portrait, so please contact her to discuss your options and what would be most suitable for your animal

Finn, the gray horse to the right, was created from the photos taken specifically for his portrait (see below). Debs took several digital photos and together we worked through them all to discover the perfect one.

When Debs arrived for a viewing she  loved him so much she took him away for framing before Kate had signed his portrait! 

 

 

Good images are essential to

create beautiful portraits

They should be:

Clear & sharp

taken in daylight

Taken Specifically for the commission

Taken at the animal's head height

Digital photos are easily lightened or cropped in towards the animal.

Traditional prints can be scanned before making any necessary adjustments.
