Award Winning Animal Artist Colette Theriault    Bird Painting in progress

Follow the progression of a portrait as the subject comes to life. Using special software, I first create a few mock poses from your submitted photographs. This gives a rough idea of what the final portrait will look like. Once the perfect pose is chosen, I start to draw or paint your portrait in priority sequence of my commission queue.  Clients are able to view the step-by-step creation of their drawing or painting and ask questions and give comments or suggestions as I am working on their masterpiece! Each page is updated frequently as I work on a portrait and you can view more details by clicking on each work in progress page below.
