YOUR TO DO LIST

  • We need  a "good" photo...send 1-3 photos of your pet for a better selection.  If you have a favorite, tell us and we'll try to use.
  • Your photo should be clear, up close & in a well lit area.  A high resolution photo is the best.  
  • Idealy your pet photo will show both of your pet's eyes, the nose, the mouth and its personality!
  • Using a more traditional pet pose works better than trying a new weird angle.
  • Sorry, we can't piece 2 photos together to create 1.  It won't look good!
  • If you can't find a "good" photo, please take a new one. Ideal photos can be shot on a sunny day under a shade tree. The light is evenly distributed and your pets fur will show nicely.
  • Only one animal per photo please.
  •  Please send your photos to info@iheartcorkyart.com 
  • We'll provide a printed color photo for you to reference during class, however the colors may not represent 100%.  You may also want to bring copies on your phone for reference.

OUR PROCESS

  • When we receive your photo(s) we'll send a confirmation email.
  • We'll make every effort to use your favorite photo.  Ideally we want to choose one for the best positioning or with a unique look.  We'll let you know of any changes to eliminate surprises.
  • We'll sketch your pet on a 16" x 20" canvas.
  • When you arrive for class an artist will assist you in selecting paint colors.  Please think ahead of a background color.
  • Your artist will then walk the class step-by-step through the painting process to capture the likeness of your pet.
  • We have an optional black frames available for your finished painting. (additional cost applies)

Welcome

Below are only suggestions on how to pick the best pictures for us to sketch for your pet painting.  You are welcome to paint anything picture you choose however, if we question your choice of picture(s) please don't feel offended.  


                    We have your best interest at heart and want this to be                                         a very positive experience for you!

Can't see the entire face with the hands covering it. We don't combine paintings or sketch hands :(

Lots of shadows around the face, especially on the right side. Not for an inexperienced painter
