Tino for dad….

For this latest dog portrait commission I was asked to paint this lovely Teckel called Tino.

He sadly passed away recently and his owner’s son from Northamptonshire asked me to paint him in pastel as a gift to his dad who understandably missed such a character.

The client wanted me to ensure I captured every hair as Tino had a typically mad coat.

Working together we decided on a plain coloured background to enhance his coat and I selected the brown frame to compliment the key colours in this pet portrait.
