Pastel sketches are designed to be a more affordable option, to own an original piece of art as a forever memento of your beautiful pets. To make this option possible, the portrait won't have a pastel background painted.
For further information about the process of commissioning a Pet Portrait, please go to my Commissions page.

Your pastel sketch will be flatpacked, couriered to you ready for framing
Some photos of a commissioned pastel painting "Suzy" being flat packed ready to send to Australia...
The pastel paintings are covered with a protective glassine cover and securely placed within a black foam core folder.
This is a nice way to present your painting if unframed. It is flat packed, ready to take to the framer. If the pastel painting is kept flat, this eliminates any damage to the pastel surface before being framed.
Promotional material and a letter of delivery provides you with some tips on framing pastel artwork and the ongoing care of a pastel painting.
This painting is packed between two thinline MDF boards for support, and a waterproof sealed bag. This makes it virtually indestructible.
