Amber a chocolate labrador enjoying herself on the beach in this pet portrait. Amber’s pet portrait made a fantastic surprise for a special birthday. In the original photograph she was wearing a collar. The owner asked if I could remove it as sometimes this will distract the subject in a painting.
Usually collars are quite easy to remove on a dog. It maybe necessary to adjust the fur slightly so it is more level and not coming up over where the collar would be. If your dog is wearing a harness in the photo this maybe too tricky to leave out. As a harness will cover quite a lot of chest, however, if there are other images which show chest fur, then I can use these. So long as they are quite similar in pose to the actual reference image.
