Christmas is always a great time for me, a Pet Portrait is a lovely and unique present and so Jim (Ralphs Dad) asked me to do a painting of Ralph for his partner and Ralphs mum, Naomi.
I had seen some pictures of the gorgeous Ralph on Facebook when he was a puppy so was excited when I knew I could paint him, don't know what it is about a Bulldog but no matter how grumpy they can look they always make me smile!
Jim decided to go for the A1 size canvas and why not, have to say I always prefer painting on a bigger scale although it can be tricky if you've seen the size of my 'studio' (living room in a teeny weeny cottage in the Purbecks!) but it was definitely the right choice for Ralph
I got a lovely message on Boxing Day to say that Naomi loved the painting and from the looks of it Ralph was pooped after a great Christmas!
