Recently a number of people have asked me to paint their dog, so I thought I would outline how this works. I accept commissions for whippets, greyhounds and lurchers.
Stage One A Photograph Of Your Hound
To get started you need to supply me with a photograph of your hound against a plain background. I am looking for a clear shape and need to see their eyes, ears and paws. If you are unsure what to email, a look in the sighthound section of my website will help.
Stage Two Pick A Type of Artwork
Monoprint - Line drawing of hound using black ink on heavyweight cartridge paper, which will take two weeks to complete, supplied loose for you to take to a framer.
A4 11.7 x 8.3 inches £95
A5 8.3 x 5.8 inches £75
Watercolour - One colour (either black or brown) tonal painting of your hound on watercolour paper, which will take two weeks to complete, supplied loose for you to take to a framer. Same sizes and prices as monoprints
Oil Painting - Oil painting on plywood, of your hound with a background which will take six weeks to complete. Prices range from £195 - £595
Stage Three Approval and Payment
I email you a copy of the finished artwork for approval. If satisfied you then post me a cheque for the full amount.
Stage Four Delivery
Once the cheque has cleared, I post your artwork first class mail.
In the unlikely event the artwork is not what you had hoped, return it within 7 days for a full refund.
If you are outside the UK, we agree in writing the additional postage cost.
Any questions please shout.
