MY COLORFUL, WHIMSICAL PET PORTRAITS ARE NOT PHOTO-REALISM. THE IDEA WITH THIS "COLORFUL" OR "CARTOON-ISH" STYLE IS TO SHOWCASE THE PET IN LOADS OF COLOR. EACH ONE IS DRAWN FROM MY OWN INTERPRETATION OF THE SUBJECT. WHEN YOU PURCHASE A CUSTOM PORTRAIT, YOU ARE PURCHASING YOUR PET AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF PATRICIA WILSON.
The process begins with you ordering a painting. I take orders in batches and announce when orders are "open" via social media pages. So, keep an eye out! When orders are open you can contact me directly through my website or call 602-750-5757
Once you place your order, you can send me an email with photos and tell me about your pet. You can send a variety of photos that you feel best capture your pet's spirit and personality. We will discuss your favorite poses and expressions that commonly define your pup. Is he happy and always smiling with a tongue hanging out? Does he sleep all day long and give you the side eye if you wake him? Does he have a weird sitting posture that you love? Any favorite toys you want me to incorporate?
Everyone is sent and initial sketch of their pet. This is a rough draft. This is the part in the process where we can work together to make sure you'll have an end result we are both happy with. The rough sketch will allow you to see the basic shape and posing as well as the expression that I plan for your dog.
I am an artist and I do my best work when allowed a certain level of artistic freedom. Once we have the initial draft approved, I will take it and do what I do best!
Approval - Once the drawing is complete, I will message it to you for approval.
