I've just seen the portrait of Rosie & Rusty. You have captured both dogs.......perfectly. I can think of no other words to describe it. You've brought both dogs back...I can’t thank you enough.

I received my portrait of Angel today. When I opened the tube with her picture in it, it was like she was still here with me. I looked at her and just cried. You really captured her beauty and spirit.

Beautiful Rottweiler Dog Portrait

Dog Portraits

All my dog portraits are painted in pastels, a media that famous artists such as Degas have used to create remarkably animated portraits. I love this media because it allows me to capture fine details and create movement within the work. Dog portrait sizes begin at 12” by 9” (as head and shoulders works) and can be as large as 24” by 18” for full body studies or group portraits. You can view more of my dog paintings by following this link.

Horse Portraits

For horse portraits, I create them as head and neck studies in a range of different sizes, the most popular being 16” by 12” and 18” by 14”. As in the example here, its also possible to bring a number of horses together into one portrait, perhaps even creating a work with different generations or horses you have owned over the years. You can view more horse portraits by clicking here.

Other Subjects

Over the years, I’ve created portraits of several other animals including cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, parrots, and even hamsters! As can be seen in this guinea pig portrait, owners often ask for a special feature to be including, such as favourite feeding bowl or cushion. As the size of each animal can vary hugely, it’s usually best to contact me first and then I can advise on the appropriate dimensions for the work. You can see some more of my animal portraits here.
