“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 💛
