HOW ‘PROJECT PET’ PAINTING WORKS
When you register, you will be asked to email a high-quality image of your pet to our contact at Pinot’s Palette. In the photo, your pet should be centered, in focus and in the foreground with no furniture or objects blocking parts of its body. If it’s a head shot, make sure there are no cropped-off ears. Look for a picture taken outside on a cloudy day or in a shaded area, or inside in natural, indirect lighting, to avoid dark shadows.
Once they receive your email, Pinot’s staff will crop out the background of the image leaving just your pet. Then the cropped image will be converted a simple line drawing and transferred onto a 16” x 20” canvas. When you arrive, you will be equipped with a glass of wine, brushes, paints and expert guidance on how to paint your pet’s portrait.
