Patterdale Terrier Pet Portrait

This is the first time I have been commissioned a painting of a Patterdale Terrier dog. One of the many aspects which makes my job so enjoyable is finding out about various dog breeds.  When you commission a painting from me I will ask you for some information about your dog this helps me build a picture in my mind of their personality.  Diesel is a very playful dog which you can see from his expression in those eyes.

Although the reference image for this pet portrait was taken inside it was in a very well lit room. For photography tips visit my page. It is best to take photos outside in natural light however rooms such as a conservatory work fine because of all the windows.
