Please send your reference photo(s) by e-mail, of course I can help you choosing the best one from several photos.
Most important: The photos must be sharp and should have a high resolution. The better the reference, the better the painting!
The animal should be visible as big as possible (full format) and should be
photographed at eye level.
The eyes must be clearly visible (colour, reflections…) and no shadows of other things should be seen on the face.
To obtain natural colours, it is good to take the photos outdoors at daylight, in any case without camera flash.
Of course you can send photos shot by a professional photographer, but then please give me his / her written permission, that I'm allowed to use his / her photo
commercially as reference for a painting.
