8×10 Value Portrait


**Please order portraits from me at Portraits are not actually out of stock, rather I am having a problem with my web store. Thank you for your understanding.**

Tired of the same old family picture you have taken year after year? I can help you change things up a bit by making you a one-of-a-kind drawing. Impress your friends when you tell them it was made by a published children’s book illustrator.

So, what IS a Value Portrait? It’s an original one-of-a-kind painting featuring whoever you want (you, your family, your pets, your parents, your favorite teacher, etc), drawn in the Cordial Kitten style. Each image is a watercolor and graphite mixed media piece on thick, archival Stonehenge paper.

See below for more information!

Product Description

When you purchase a Full Service Portrait you get an original painting along with a small .jpg to use on your facebook, blog, etc. (Please note: having your image made into a greeting card or any other type of reproduction will result in an additional fee).

Typically orders work like this:

  • You order.
  • I’ll give you my email address, and you email me as many pictures as you’d like of the family/pet/person who will make an appearance in the portrait.
  • Please note that the Value Portrait does not include a full background. A simple wash of color, or a banner with a name or special date is ok. If you require a full background, please purchase a “Full Service” portrait from my shop.
  • After discussing your final image, I will produce and send a sketch for your approval. You can make any changes you see fit (up to three revisions).
  • When we’ve agreed on the sketch I will begin on the final color version of the piece.
  • When it’s finished, your drawing will be carefully packaged up and sent out directly to you.

Seem like a lot of steps? It’s actually not so bad, I promise!

The final piece will remain the copyright of Candice Hartsough McDonald.

Generally portraits take about a month to complete, but can sometimes be more or less than that depending on my schedule. Please contact me for information.
