Commission a Dog Portrait
Commission a unique dog portrait, in the style of the Old Masters based on life or your favourite dog photo.
Painted with Windsor and Newton inks on thick watercolour paper unlike any of the portraits on the market at the moment.
"Simply email or post me a photograph of your dog and I will get in touch to discuss your commission with you"
If I can meet with you and your dog, I would be happy to do so - it gives me a living idea of what the dogs personality is like.
I am also able to paint your dog to life size or almost life size, as seen in this portrait of two flat coat retrievers →
I have always painted, firstly landscapes and flowers and then in 2000 I started to paint wildlife. With the arrival of my dog Betti I wanted to paint dog portraiture, to capture her character in the painting, using a limited palette of inks and watercolour.
"I wanted to give my dog portraits a timeless quality so I stained the paper and deckled the edges as if they were drawn by an old master or found in an attic."
Each dog portrait is totally unique. It is up to you when sending me an image to make sure that you send one that conveys your dog's character, the angle of the head, the inquisitive nature of your beloved pet.
These dog portraits make ideal presents and the owners have been known to cry when they first look at them.
