Black Dog Paintings
Black dogs are definitely the most popular colour of my dog paintings.
My latest commission completed is a lovely black labrador, her name is Pip. Pip’s owners live around an hour or so drive, so I was able to meet her in person. Pip is shy and doesn’t like too much fuss and prefers to be in her home environment.
Pet Portrait Artist Locally
This painting is 12′ x 10′ aperture and the overall size when framed being approx 17″ x 15″. More recently I am framing portraits in a lovely shaped wide wood moulding. It comes ready made in bare wood, which has a lovely smooth surface from which to paint on. The popular colours I am using are a Laura Ashley very pale twine and Little Greene High White, which is a very pale grey. The framing sets the paintings off perfectly.
All my Pet Portraits are also framed using TruVue ultra low reflection, which gives optimum viewing. It makes a huge different to the usual float glass, and often looks as though there is no glass at all! Portrait paintings are recommended to be hung on a shaded wall. Not facing direct sunlight.
As I am now working just part time creating pastel painting, it is worth booking in advance to secure a place. Please get in touch through the enquiry form. I will reply from my email address and will ask for some photographs and your timescale.
