“Doris”

Sadly no longer with us “Doris” was a huge pleasure to paint, a gorgeous horse. Unfortunately we didn’t have any clear photos of her neck so I had to mix and match a few photos to get the result I wanted. Honestly a real pleasure painting this horse another one I’ll miss having on my drawing board but I know her owner is happy to have her home ☺️💛

“Nuno”

Quite possibly the sweetest commission I’ve had, this lovely pup is now a dog but his owner wanted a portrait of him as a puppy. Border collie’s being “my breed” its definitely a commission I was more than excited to do☺️💛

“Stella”

A surprise commission for a client of mine, this was such a nice portrait to do I was so excited to see what her owner would think. This portrait was commissioned for Lola’s owner so I decided to try and match their portraits with a similar background and I think the colours and lighting really suits them both. Such a pleasure painting these pups, I love commissions like this 💛

“Lola”

Sadly no longer with us, but I adored painting this gorgeous pup named Lola. The colours in her picture where so inspiring so I thought I’d try a different style of background for her to compliment her coat. Please let me know what you think 💛
