Commissions

I create pet and wildlife portraits in a variety of mixed medias such as watercolour, ink, pencil and coloured pencil. All artwork is painted or drawn on high quality paper.

I love capturing the fantastic personalities of each pet through my

artwork. To do so I would like to know more about your pet, do they

have any funny traits, special markings? Do they guard the top of the

garden from the ducks? Or is that just mine? Haha,  Whatever it is let

me know!

I don’t restrict myself to just cats and dogs so whatever your pet is, it

is more than welcome.

The process

  • Get in touch with me about your requirements for your
    commission via email – leigh.townsend@ymail.com If you have
    a budget and a date you require the commission by let me know
    and I will do my best to work to your requirements.

  • I will give you a total cost and approximate timescale.

  • I will ask you to send me the best photograph of your pet or wildlife which I will work from. Please refer to my photograph guide further down this page.

  • Once I receive the chosen photograph I will get to work on your commission, keeping you up to date with its progress.

  • When your commission is complete I will send you photographs. If you are happy with the artwork, I will request the remaining payment via paypal. Your artworks will then be securely packed and posted to you.  

Price and payment

You can find details and prices for smaller artworks through my online shop.

If you would like a larger, more detailed commission or would like multiple

pets drawn please email me with your requirements and I will get back to

you asap. The cost will depend on the size and medium you choose and for

larger commissions a 25% deposit is required via paypal. Please do not

hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to accommodate your budget.

Photograph Guide

I know how difficult it is to get even a half decent photograph of your pet. They never sit still for long enough. So here are a few tips I’ve picked up for that perfect photo.

  • You need a good close up to make sure you get those all important
    details, maybe even capturing that cheeky, mischievous look they
    give you.

  • Natural lighting is perfect so take your pet outside with the sun behind
    the photographer.

  • This is always a two man job so have one savvy camera person and
    another person by their side with treats, a favourite toy anything that
    will grab your pets attention.

  • If you don’t want the collar on the artwork make sure you take it off
    for the photograph.

  • Take a few photos at slightly different angles of both sides of your pet.

So hopefully you will have a few photographs that would be suitable for the portrait. Make sure you choose a photograph that shows off their personality.
