Selecting the Right Pictures

​Photos that are sent should be clear, large in size, and true to color.  Blurry, dark, or small pictures should not be sent.  It is better to send a few photos so that I can see the colors.  We can both decide what is the best picture to use for the painting.

Too small - a photo given to me that is too small is very hard to make out the details.     Same dog but this is a much better photo to work with.  









​The photo pixels should also be large enough for me to increase the size without destortion.

​Full Head and Body Photos - Photos with chopped off heads if painting a head portrait or chopped off body when do a full painting should not be submitted.  We can't paint what we don't see!








​Other photos that are hard to work with - The sun behind the subject will bleach out the edges and the face will be too dark.  Photos in a dark room will not show the colors correctly.  The pose of the animal should be looking at the camera.













SPECIAL NOTE - ​We cannot do any portraits that are less than 3".  It is just too hard to get the detail in to make it look like that person or pet.


Remember that the better the photo, the better the painting!
