I feel like I'm a good artist but when I get poor reference photos I feel like I'm being set up to fail. My favorite paintings are all from the best reference photos. I have a really hard time communicating what I need to clients.

You havent failed yet

This artist does her pet portraits in colour pencil, thought you might like to look at her work.

It's a pity you can't go and photograph the dogs yourself so that you get what you need
