Cocker Spaniels certainly seem to be a popular breed for me, not that I'm complaining I absolutely love painting them (particularly their ears!!) this is the lovely Charlie...
I met Charlies Dad, Wes, at the Shambles market in Blandford back in February, I had with me another Spaniel I had recently painted which happened to look a lot like Charlie so certainly caught Wes's eye!
I arranged to pop round for a photo shoot and to properly meet Charlie a week after the show and I have to say he was the ideal model! I got some great shots of him and also had time for a bit of a play with his favourite tug of war rope (definitely one of the perks of the job!)
The painting is on an A2 size canvas and I hear it will be proudly displayed in the living room, it's always a great feeling knowing my work is brightening up peoples homes!
