"The portrait looks amazing! I am so happy with it."

A montage of family pets with a dales-like background. Each of the animals were taken from individual photographs and then scaled to the correct size relative to each other and the composition left to right arranged. The initial idea for the two cats on the right was for them to be sat on hay bales but they would have taken a great deal of time to be done to a complimenting standard. Instead, taking inspiration from what else would be found on a farm, milk churns were used and perhaps add another more interesting element to the portrait.

I was initially concerned the sheer amount of pastel and resulting dust may be problematic in keeping colours vibrant and the detail sharp, but it's surprising what you can do if you are very careful! The original photos used for the montage of family pets are shown below.
