There are a number of options available if you would like to commission a dog portrait from Julie. The simplest type of portrait is a head and shoulders work, and these start at 12" by 10" in size. Portraits can also be in full body, and include a background to the work if prefered. If you have a number of dogs, these can be depicted together on one work - even if they are from different photographs or even different periods of your life!

The pastel painting here is of a beautiful Rottweiler dog, and is 24" by 18" in size.

Here you can see the original photo that Julie was sent. Notice how the dog's left arm has been moved across so that it appears in a more natural pose.


Horse Portraits can be ordered as head and shoulders pastel paintings, and work well at 16" by 12" size (or larger).
