About Paint Your Pet
Come paint your Fur Baby with us!
Thinking you don't have the talent for this?
Your pet will be sketched out on the canvas for you from photos that you email to us!
PET PHOTO GUIDELINES:
-The key to making this class successful is a good, clear, up-close, well-lit photo of your pet. This is SOOOO important! We need to be able to see the FACE, eyes, nose, body and other features clearly! (Though they make look cute curled up in a ball sleeping in bed this does not make for a good painting!)
-Send a few different shots if you want! We’ll choose the best one, making the wisest decision on how to position your pet's drawing on the canvas. If you don’t have any good photos, then get to it – grab a camera and take some! If your photo isn’t good, your painting won’t be either!
TIPS FOR TAKING A GOOD PHOTO:
Take the photo at eye level with your pet!.
Yep, that means getting down and up closely to them!
Use natural lighting and outdoors where possible! Detail is best captured with outside light which makes for a better pet portrait.
It’s all about the eyes! I cannot stress enough how important it is for the eyes to look good and be looking towards the camera. It’s where all the emotion is! Use treats to get their attention!
CLOSE-UPS WORK BEST
Think of traditional portraits, close-ups work best!
TOO DARK/ BAD INDOOR LIGHTING
Don’t select images that are taken inside, at night in a dark room and have artificial light. Also avoid using a flash, pets eyes reflect strangely and we do not want this.
-Send your photos AFTER you’ve registered online but no later then:
Sunday 21st January for the 28th!
We need some time to get your pet sketched onto the canvas!
-Like all Vine & Canvas events all art supplies and refreshments are provided!
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have!!!
