- Send me a good quality photograph of your pet that you would like me to paint.
Your portrait will only be as good as the photograph so send me some good quality snaps. ( Scroll down for some Photography Tips!)
If your not sure what to pick you can send me multiple pics so don't fret we can chat and work out the best options including composition and details.
- Once all details have been finalised I'll get my paintbrushes out! All you have to do is await your little buddy to arrive through your letterbox.

But if your my only pet commission at the time processing time should be between 3 - 7 days excluding shipping.
All shipping packages will be sent with tracking and signature to insure it gets to you.
(Photography Tips) -
- A good quality clear photo taken in natural lighting (outside is good), preferably no flash as this can loose true colours and definition of your pet.
- Perspective is key and a photograph taken at the pets eye level always turns out better than from above as proportions can become distorted.
- If your not sure what picture you would like painted you can send multiple images. This will help me to get a true likeness of your furry best friend whilst giving me the best options to get the best outcome possible.
- These portraits are unframed. All portraits come in their true paper form.
- I will upload the finished artwork on my art social platforms if you want it to be kept a secret I can hold back on posting until its been gifted to avoid ruined surprises.
- If you post the commission somewhere, please link back to my page or social platforms for credit my Instagram is @tasminbassett.art and Facebook is https://www.facebook.com/tasminbassett.art/
