In this blog post I take a look at wildlife portrait commissions and how they work.
The wildlife subject is essentially up to you – I can either work from a photograph that you provide (assuming a high enough image quality and appropriate copyright permissions), or if you have a particular animal in mind but don’t have a photograph yourself, I can usually source a reference image(s) to work from.
Once we have decided on the subject and composition, I make an outline sketch of the animal, highlighting any areas of contrast, before moving onto drawing in the detail itself. You can find out more about how I approach my artwork and the process involved in a previous blog post: ‘What’s in a drawing?’.
Once the drawing is complete, I will email you a photograph of the artwork before mounting it up and framing it (if required). A certificate of authenticity is also added to all framed artwork. It is then carefully packaged and sent out to you.
