When it comes to pet portraits it has always been about the dog portraits. Being mans best friend I am not suprised. A way behind came the horse portraits and then seriously lagging were that cat portraits. Not this last month or two. My pet portraits have been dominated by the feline kind!
It started off with a double cat portrait that was completed in April and then this last month 90% of the pet portraits have been cat portraits!
I am so glad about this as they have always been totally under represented for pet portraits UK, so it certainly makes a welcome change.
First up is the stunningly handsome Dexter. This beautiful cat has a very sad story as he was piosoned and his owners were devastated. As a result they contacted me for a pet portrait of their handsome boy.
Of course I was only too delighted to help them. My main goals with my pet portraits, is not only to capture their detail and fur colour accurately, but their personality.
My client was over the moon with Dexters pet painting and they chose a stunning framed for his portrait.Your pet portraits can be framed here and if you would like any more information please pop over here.
This stunning siamese cat was the second cat portrait I did for this client. I haven’t painted many siamese cats so it was a lovely portrait to do. I also particualry enjoyed recreating the wicker basket he is lying in. I love capturing all the fiddly details. It is very satisfying.
Siamese cats are an amazing breed and I have even heard they are like dogs in many respects. They can been trained to walk on a lead. Here is some interesting information them
