Jake a small toy breed Dog

This soft pastel dog portrait was one of two paintings commissioned together and the family cat was painted a year later.  All three paintings have matching wide solid wood driftwood frames. 

It is amazing how when we look through our photos we realise how few good quality images there are.  Especially of our pets as we tend to snap away here and there without taking too much thought. Plus they are usually on the go or just don’t sit still.  

So I think it is a good idea to have some nice posed sitting photos as you never know when you may need them.  You can see some photography tips on my website.
