I have been really busy this last two weeks. I have a 5 day break coming up and I had quite few pet portraits to be completed just before, whilst I was away and just after I get back so I have had to work really hard to not let anyone down.
I am getting enquires for Christmas too now, so I really wouldn’t leave it long if you want to commission a pet portrait.
The lasted dog I painted is a lovely border terrier, I actually can’t remember his name? How bad is that? We shall call him Ted I think. I can’t find the email with his name on and I always ask, so I am not sure where it went. I feel to embarrassed to ask again!
This portrait was a 10×8 inch portrait and I decided to paint him landscape to make sure we got more of his beautiful head in and less body. I chose a simple sage green background to avoid it competing with him and the frame. We picked an oak frame to compliment his portrait and my client is delighted with it.
