"I am writing to say how wonderful the picture is - you have caught them both to perfection! Thank you so much for all your care and attention in creating what is a very lively representation...your drawing now has pride of place in our lounge!"

(Dr Ian Wotherspoon, Scotland)

Dog Portraits can be head and shoulder studies on a plain background, or more eleborate full body works with scenic backdrops. I also undertake group paintings of dogs from photos.

If you look to the left you'll see an example of two cocker spaniels painted in full body with background detail. Here's the original photo that I was sent:-

The owner specifically asked for the dogs be depicted in their walking area. To give a more pleasing composition, I created a horizon line with hills and blue sky in the distance. Read more here about how to order a dog portrait.

 
 

Horse Portraits like my other animal paintings, are worked on from photographs supplied by the customer.

Horses can be depicted on plain, scenic or atmospheric backgrounds. Here the customer requested an atmospheric one. There's more information here about how to order a horse portrait.

With all my portraits I use the finest quality art materials - Stabilo pastel pencils (for detailing), Rowney soft pastels (for blending) working on Canson fine art paper.
