There are a range of options available for dog portraits. It's possible to commission a head and shoulders work on a plain background, or order a more complex portrait depicting the dog in full body, and with scenery in the background. Portraits can be single studies, or depict a number of dogs together. Julie can also work from different photos of your dogs and bring them all together in one work.

The portrait on the left is of a beautiful Rottweiler dog, and is 24" by 18" in size.

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


Horse Portraits can be commissioned as head and shoulders studies, and work best at 16" by 12" (or larger).
