Dog Art – Helen Chugg
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. Getting on a bit in year, she doesn’t like too much fuss and prefers to be in her home environment.
This painting is 12′ x 10′ aperture and the overall size 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.
Working now just part time, I get booked very quickly. So it is always worth securing a slot in advance of a special birthday or occasion. Please get in touch through the enquiry form. I will then reply through my email address, where you can send photographs and gain more information.
