Cat Portraits Testimonial
A message to say thank you so very much for the most brilliant painting of my 5 cats. Chris
presented it to me yesterday and I am absolutely thrilled with it. You have really captured
their lovely characters so perfectly, and I really appreciate all your hard work in putting this
together with Chris. I could not have had a better birthday present.
It has taken pride of place in our Iiving room and will be cherished for many years to come, many thanks once
I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous painting you did of my cat Tootsie, commissioned by my mum.
I was blown away (i.e in tears!) at how beautifully you had captured her and how life like it was. It truely is lovely.

Helpful tips for taking your own photos
Try to kneel down so that you are at eye level with your animal- not too close as this can distort the angle of view. Alternatively, place your animal on a bench or wall, this will insure the correct perspective. (Try to do this with a helper).
If possible a helper needs to stand a little way behind the photographer and make noises either, with a squeaky toy or by calling.
(A biscuit can encourage an expression).
DO NOT take a photo from above your animal looking down at it, as the size of the head and nose will exaggerated in proportion to the feet.
Alterations cat paintings, if needed
Once cat paintings are at a stage for viewing, John will scan and send a proof via email for your approval.
If alterations are necessary I will make the adjustments to the painting and send further proofs until your cat painting is as you like it.
