Pastel Pet Portrait Blog Give-A-Way

I have recently started doing commissions for Pastel Pet Portraits as you have probably seen on previous posts. To celebrate my new venture I am having a blog Give-A-Way of a Pastel Pet Portrait. All you need to do to enter my Give-A-Way is become a follower of this blog and/or my art blog HERE at "Genista Pawtraits" plus leave a comment on either one of my Give-A-Way posts telling me the name of your dog/cat, breed, colour etc and your email address so that I can contact the winner. Comments will not be published, they will be kept private and deleted after the draw has taken place. The winner will need to send me by email a very clear photograph of their pet to enable me to create the pastel portrait. The better quality the photo the better the portrait will be.
If you are already a follower of this blog and/or my art blog I will put your name in twice. If you become a follower of both I will put your name in two more times.
An example of one of my pastel portraits:

If you put my Give-A-Way on your blog I will put your name in the draw for another chance also, but please let me know you have done so.

Draw will take place on Monday 6th August

I will publish any comments that do not contain an email address.

I hope you will all enter and I look forward to creating a Pastel Pet Portrait for the winner.

Warmest Wishes

A sweet little french bulldog in graphite pencil A4 size on quality paper. The lighting was poor when taking these photographs so do not do my drawing justice. I will therefore add better photographs taken by my daughter with her super camera as soon as I am able.

Max framed and ready to go..
Hope you like him
