Pet or people portraits are available in watercolor or acrylic. I use top quality materials to ensure the preservation of my paintings. Watercolor paintings are painted on Arches 140 lb. cold pressed paper. You can have a watercolor painting matted and framed or I can mount the painting on ready-to-hang Ampersand Claybord. This process will lock you into the typical frame dimensions so please specify the size. There is an additional charge for the claybord mounting process.
Acrylic paintings are painted on deep edge gallery-wrapped canvas or textured gessobord panel. The gessobord panel can be matted and framed as it is 1/4" deep.
I work from your photographs and prefer close up quality photographs. The better the resolution the better the portrait! I love to capture as many details as I can especially of the eyes and any unique expressions, so good close-ups are helpful. Photographs can be emailed to me and once received I will contact you to discuss any detailed questions I may have.
After we confirm the size, price, etc. and upon agreement, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required at this time.
At the completion of the painting, I will email a photograph of your portrait. Upon your approval, final payment is due and I will ship your painting to you.
There are no changes allowed on watercolor paintings due to the unforgiving nature of the medium. There is one correction allowed on acrylic paintings which is included in the price.
