BONNEE, BELLA & BENTLEY

My latest finished commission, finished in the first week of August is a lovely example of a multiple dog portrait.  The painting shows Bonnee an eleven year old working springer spaniel, Bella a three year old show springer spaniel and Benley a one year old show cocker spaniel.  

These three beautiful friends love to have rides on the family canal boat which I was also asked to add as a backdrop to the portrait.   The painting will be given to my customers husband as a birthday surprise and she was really delighted with the finished result and gave the testimonial below….

Note: When supplying the photo or photos of your animals please remember to have a good image size so that features are clear to see and  several different photos for me to work from is ideal.  Photos should if possible be taken at ‘eye level’ rather than looking down on the subject.

Below you can see some of the photos I was given for reference and my original sketch.

“Oh wow! That is so much better than I ever expected. Thank you.              He will love it!”

DAISY THE DALMATION

I have just finished a lovely portrait of a Dalmation called Daisy. She really was a joy to paint and I had perfect photos to work from too which is always a great help.

The thing to remember with photos of animals is to have a good image size so that features are clear to see and  several different ones to work from too ideally.  Photos should if possible be taken at ‘eye level’ rather than looking down on the subject.

Here you can see how I choose my photos, produced the first sketch and then transform it into the finished painting including the background of Daisies that had been requested.

Daisy’s owner was really delighted with her portrait and gave the following testimonial….

“A wonderful painting which looks exactly like Daisy, I’m so happy with the finished result with the beautiful flowers in the background. It has pride of place in our home. Will recommend to all my family and friends.” 

 

 

NELLIE THE COCKERPOO

Another brand new painting I have just finished is of Nellie the cockerpoo.  Nellie is a lovely girl who’s owner Helen runs the South Norfolk branch of

barkingmad.uk.com

Nellie is the perfect subject and is shown here wearing her company bandanna (although I have made the logo a little bigger – artistic licence!)

Helen said that Nellie’s favourite place is the beach so I painted her in a lovely sandy scene.

Helen was delighted with the result and gave me the following testimonial as well as featuring the painting on her own website….

“Thank you so so much for the gorgeous picture of Nellie- I’m absolutely stunned by it! I’m so so grateful!”
