Dog Art Helen Chugg

Dog Artist

Black dog against a muted background

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. 

Pet Portrait Artist Locally

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.
