Listed below are my current prices for pet portrait commissions as of 2023.
Pet portraits come unmounted and unframed. Pricing is based on pet portraits drawn in graphite pencils with no background.
This price list is designed with simplicity in mind. Your pet portrait will fit into any standard 'off the shelf' frame.
If you'd like to request a different size than listed below, your portrait would need to be professionally framed by your local framers. Please contact me to discuss alternative sizing.
SECURING YOUR BOOKING
Have you decided on what you want? I work with high quality paper stock and graphite pencils to create an original portrait.
So that I can truly capture the character and personalities of the animals from your favourite photographs* please ensure that you have a high-quality reference photos for me to work from. More information about the best types of photos to send click here.
Contact me via the form on my website, via email or social media and we can discuss your commission.
In order to secure your commission, I will require a 50% non-refundable deposit which can be made via bank transfer or PayPal.
Once the payment has been made, the commission is booked in for you from my next available date, or a date that we have discussed. Please note that I do get booked up months in advance, so if you have a special date in mind, I recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If we cannot get your commission on time then I do also offer Gift Vouchers as an alternative, these will need to be paid in full before you receive the voucher.
*Please note for more than 2 Pets we would need to discuss a price for your commission.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Once I have started your commission I will send you WIP (work in progress) images to ensure that you are pleased with the portrait, starting with the initial sketch and each stage in-between. Upon completion, I will send you a final image to which the remaining balance is then paid, only when you and I are 100% happy.
TIMESCALE AND SHIPPING
What about the timescale? It can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks to complete your commission depending on the size, number of subjects and the complexity of the drawing(s), so please bare this in mind when looking into booking. Please check at the top of this page to see when my next availability is.
UK delivery is included in the cost of your portraits, and will be sent with Royal Mail 1st Class and Signed, if you require special Delivery for other countries, please contact my beforehand so we can find the cost for this.
PRICE LIST AND COMMISSION INFORMATION
Just AMAZING Chloé captured so much detail, my family commissioned a drawing of my dog 'Chunk' for my birthday in July I loved it so much I had my Partners dog done for CHRISTMAS its so life like. Thank you so much. - Graeme David
I am blown away by the likeness! The pet portrait of my mother-in-law's standard poodle is beautifully drawn. I cannot wait to see her face on her birthday when she opens her gift. The attention to detail of her fur and her eyes sparkle, just spectacular! Highly recommend Paint the Moment. Professional, personable and extremely talented. A***

I was completely over the moon with the final piece and my mother and father loved it so much that they are looking to get one of their old dog too.
I was kept updated all the way through the process . So happy with the service I received .
You can really see the love and care that has been given in the drawings . I find it hard to understand how so much detail there is in the portrait, but for me the eyes are truly something else .Thank you Chloe,
Couldn’t be happier
