Welcome to my On the Easel Page. Here you can follow the pet portraits I am working on and recently finished portraits to. Of course not everyone wishes to have their portrait uploaded to this page as they may not want the recipient to stumble across it. I will always ask when I start your pet portrait if this is this case.
Currently on the Easel
This week I am working on Hamish. Hamish is a a beautiful little westie that loves his cushions and blankets so his owner wanted this represented in his portrait. She took a photograph of him in usual spot and I have used this for the basis of his portrait. To the left is the photograph my client supplied me.
Here is Hamish's portrait as it currently stands at the moment, just a few finishing touches to apply. I added in his ears as requested. My client has been following updates via my Facebook page. I have some tidying up of the blanket he is lying on, to add some finishing details and contrast and Hamish's portrait will be done.
This little dog was such fun to paint, with his bandana and the beach behind. When my client contacted me he requested a beach scene to go behind Milo. I quite often change backgrounds to fields or other scenic views for my pet portraits so please don't hesitate to contact me
