Treasured companions captured in rich watercolours capture special memories, especially as a pet grows older.

“The picture is incredible. You have caught the pair of them so completely. I cannot wait to give it to her…”
“Thank you so very very much. I cannot express how totally thrilled I am.”
“Both these studies are truly exceptional and now lift our spirits each time we see them and bring back so many happy memories for us.”

The commissioning process:
Rich watercolours are particularly effective for capturing animals’ shiny eyes, noses and glossy coats. I have painted to commission for twenty years and can guide you through the process which begins with a visit to view your dog in their own home, where they are happiest. I take observational notes and use photographs to plan layout and to edit lighting conditions. (Post humus portraits are also possible from edited photographs.) After you have viewed a choice of photographic mock-ups of the painting and approved the planned layout, I take a 50% deposit to start your painting. A further viewing takes place nearer to completion when adjustments can be made.

£650 for a single unframed head and shoulders portrait (up to A3 size/42 x 30cms.) £950 for a full body with background unframed (up to 75 x 55cms). Some savings for multiple portraits at the same location.
