Often a single favorite photograph will suffice provided it has good lighting and detail. Otherwise, collect together several photographs of your horse, his or her head as well as particular personal attributes such as in- focus closeups of eyes, hair whorls, mane and forelock, markings and ear shapes. Don’t forget the expressions that you feel personify your horse’s charms. All are helpful in forming an impression of your horse’s personality and looks. For an an original portrait both striking and artistic, consider isolating the singular beauty of certain features, for instance your horse’s amazing eye along with his or her facial markings.
Photos can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed by post to the address below (they will be returned along with your completed portrait). I will email an initial layout sketch for your approval. A 50% down payment is required with the remainder upon completion. I invoice through Paypal or check.
The finished piece will be carefully packaged and shipped to you via UPS or FedEx unless otherwise arranged.
