OMG Jo, I’ve just received Sunny’s portrait, I did a happy flappy dance when I opened it. I absolutely love it!

Jo has done several paintings for me. She has that rare gift of painting your pet with a realism that makes for a truly emotional experience on viewing it. When you receive one of her paintings it will bring joy to your heart. Her approachable, helpful and accommodating nature makes it easy to discuss your commission requirements with her.

Perfect! Having come across Jo by her cards through Thortful, i was really pleased to learn she did private commissions. From initial inquiry to delivery Jo was warm and helpful at every stage. She captured Hugo not just in his physical appearance but his character also. My wife was thrilled with the finished product and everyone who has seen it thinks it is beautiful. A big thank you to Jo and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Got a question? 
See if I've answered it here...

  1. What size should I get?

    This does depend on your budget and where the artwork will go in your home.

    The standard is my most popular size, either A4 (to fit a standard A4 frame) or a 20cm x 20cm square (to fit a 10 x 10 inch frame) at £225

    This size works well not just for a wall but also for a shelf or a desk, it's a bit more mobile.

    My large size is A3 and will fit a standard A3 frame, this can also accommodate more than one dog at £350 for a large single dog or a double portrait with up to 2 dogs

    For anything larger (I can work up to A2 in size) please get in touch to discuss your requirements and I can quote on an individual basis - jo@joscottart.com

  2. Does it come framed?
    No, framing is available on request and I can include it as an option if you’d like it, just bear in mind that there will be an additional charge for the frame and for postage and packaging
  3. Is postage included?

    Yes, for all UK delivery addresses, your order will come wrapped in sturdy packaging via Royal Mail special delivery.

    For all European or American destinations I use either DHL or UPS and don't worry I'll quote for the shipping cost in advance.

    Additional postage and packaging will be quoted for any framed paintings, at the time of ordering.

  4. What if I don't like the finished artwork?
    Well this hasn’t happened to me yet, but I think it’s worth talking about. 
    Hopefully, from this website, you’ve seen enough examples of my work to know roughly what to expect.
     My style is not photo realist, it leans more toward character expression, but if something isn’t quite right I’ll make small changes until it is, so don’t be afraid to speak up and let me know if a colour is wrong or the look in their eye isn’t quite right and I’ll happily work on it (within reason) until you are happy with it.
    Once you’ve accepted the artwork and paid for it I am unable to exchange or refund your order.
  5. What photo should I send you?

    I usually recommend using a favourite photograph, one that represents to you the true character of your pet.

    A high-quality head and shoulders photograph where you can clearly see the eyes is ideal. If you would like me to use a professionally taken photograph, please let me know. I will need permission from the photographer to use their picture as a reference.

    If you can avoid using photographs with a filter applied that would be helpful. I once had a photo of blue/black dog sent to me that was brown in real life!

    And, if you’re not sure, feel free to send a selection and let me choose for you.

    I say the better quality the photograph, the better the artwork, but I have been known to work with faded and curled photographs from the seventies of past loved but not forgotten pets. In these instances, I apply a huge dollop of artistic license, I draw on my experience of having painted 100’s of portraits, but there is an element of risk to this. But if you’re game, then so am I 😊

    In these scenarios, with very old photographs, if you really don't like the end result, don't worry, I'm not going to force payment from you.

  6. Do I need to pay a deposit?

    No, I’ll be honest, it’s additional administration for me and it cuts into my painting time. I like to trust people, although I was a little too trusting when I first started out all those years ago and I had one customer who didn’t pay me...

    I learnt my lesson the hard way and now ask for full payment before I send the final artwork to you. Some customers have asked to pay over 2-3 months and I can certainly provide a payment plan option if you would like one.
