A3 image measures 29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69" x 16.53"
A4 image measures 21.0 x 29.7cm, 8.27" x 11.69"
These measurements may vary a little once the painting is completed.
Please note a mount is normally fixed to the final painting which means the overall size will be slightly larger. All watercolour paintings should be framed with a mount to protect the painting from the glass in the frame. Pastel paintings should have a double mount. Also please avoid using cleaning products on the glass in the frame.
When taking a photograph of your pet, think about their personality - what makes them special, e.g. maybe your pet is known for being a bit lazy so perhaps a shot of him/her on the bed can portray this trait and have more meaning for you as a lasting memory in the final painting. Photographs of animals (and people) work best if they capture the eyes and have a variation of light and shade.
Try getting down to the level of the animal and use natural light if possible. You may need a lot of patience to get the shot you're after, so please bear this in mind.
As an example, here is a photo of Bob the Street Cat posing purrfectly for his picture!
