Please choose a clear photograph of your pet looking their best, alert, and in the pose that you want your pet painted in. I prefer if you send me at least 3 photos to work from. I will typically work primarily from one photo and use the other two for supplemental detail and information to help me get a feel for your pet’s personality. Also, the portrait doesn’t have to be an exact replica of just one photo. As you’ll see in my portrait of the malamutes, I took three separate photos and combined them into a single composition.
