Pets and their personalities are just as different from each other as their owners are. I love to capture the singular aspects of each and here are some examples of that. Commissions shown here are in several different media including Oil, Pencil, Colour Pencil and Acrylic. To commission your own please contact me for a quote. I can also take the photographs if needed, distance permitting. Prices start from £125 in black and white pencil, £150 in Color pencil and £250 in Oil. You can email your queries to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the contact numbers.
Luke - 16" x 20" Graphite & Pencil
Luke is a very handsome dog whom I have shown here sitting in his favourite spot guarding the front door. He has an extremely intense expression which I have tried to capture here.
Alfie - Colour pencil & Watercolor 16" x 20"
I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the exuberant Alfie at his lovely home in the West Sussex countryside. We chose this shot of him looking rather dreamy for his portrait here!
Max - German Shepherd Oil 16" x 20"
Max was a Police dog and extremely handsome and imposing looking. I did this Oil painting for his handler and owner as a memorial after he sadly, though inevitably, passed on after a productive and happy life.
Yeshi - Pencil 12" x 16"
This little Lhasa Apsa was one of the sweetest, most affectionate dogs I ever had the pleasure of meeting! However she was a little menace once we got outside for her photo shoot and led her Mom and I a merry dance; cavorting through mud, weeds and general muck, in great glee. Here she is, all cleaned up and presentable and looking just a tiny bit guilty maybe?!
"Harrison" - Oil on Canvas 16" x 20"
Harrison belongs to the owners of my local Pub. He is an extremely popular presence there and often has his own dish of beer at the bar! He is a great character and I really loved painting him, though he avoided me for ages after this, as during our photo shoot he was kept waiting for his walk a good hour!
Bailey - Chihuahua - Colour pencil 12 " x 16"
Marvin, Jack and Brunel - Acrylic on Canvas 18" x 28"
Another one that was great fun to do the photo shoots for. It was lovely meeting and playing with them all. This large portrait was commissioned by their owner for his girlfriend as a surprise gift. The breeds are Dalmatian, Bichon Frise and the ever lugubrious Bassett Hound. Because this was a rush commission and time was short, I did the work in Acrylic rather than Oil.
Arwen - Colour Pencil - 12" x 16"
Arwen was a lovely Calico cat who sadly fell foul of a car. This Portrait of her was based on an early photograph and was commissioned as a memorial by her bereft family.
Ziggy - Graphite and pencil - 12" x 16"
This was a birthday gift for his owner, commissioned by two of her staff. From the many available photos from our shoot, we chose this one as it captured a quirky look he gets which is very characteristic of him apparently. I drew him in part of the grounds of his delightful country estate.
This was commissioned by a lady in France for her daughter. I loved the cheeky, watchful expression on this little chap's face and it was a delight to draw.
