what happens when I make a painting for you.......

If you want a dog painting – I need a high resolution digital image (some do get rejected) and several others showing particularly the head. It should not be in too strong a light and not have any odd shadows from objects outside the picture frame or be partly in shade. Ideally something showing lots of character. I can take a dog image and put it into a landscape/setting, but it is sometimes tricky. The deal is that I paint it, tell you how long it took (and they vary from about 6 hours for a simple head with no background to 60 plus for something complex. Fees depend on time taken, size and complexity; so please call me to discuss, or, better still, we can meet if you are local.
Oh, and there’s quite a queue so don’t hold your breath timewise!

I am happy to tackle anything (except people). In my galleries you can see the race horse Harbinger and a sailing ship, Spirit of Bermuda.
