To Book

●  Email your query to booptheart@gmail.com – include the date you’d like to receive the portrait by, keeping in mind to allow 10 days to complete the portrait, and depends on availability.
●  Once we confirm a date that suits, I will ask for a £50 deposit to secure your commission, and for a minimum of three reference photos. (Alas, pets are notoriously rubbish at sitting still for hours, so I work from images.) Tips: consider photos that capture your pet’s most familiar expressions and personality. Photos taken in natural light, which retain detail even when zoomed in, are the most helpful. If in doubt, just ask, and if there is a specific image you’d like replicated, let me know.
● Please note I don’t include backgrounds in my portraits. I typically capture animals from the chest up, which works very well for an A4 size, but if you have your heart set on a full-body drawing, or a different pose, I’ll certainly do my best to accommodate.
●  You will have a chance to approve the outline before the portrait gets underway; after that, you will see it again once completed (unless you’d rather it be a surprise…) and make the remaining payment.
● Your portrait will then be winging its way to you!
