George Selfie in Plush!

Cockapoo Selfie in Plush oil on canvas pet portraitAfter buying a Moo Selfie, Roxanne Ivan decided they wanted a Selfie with a difference, this time featuring their seriously gorgeous Cockapoo, George! They popped down to meet me at a show in the freezing cold but it meant I could get a chance to meet gorgeous George and get to know him a little.

For the background it had to be something special to them so they chose a view of Plush near where they live and a frequent walking area for George, so this was a perfect choice!

Although I love doing the Moo Selfies, it's also great to do something a tad more personal so the Pet Selfies are perfect for that, plus I think it just makes them that bit more fun!

Buddy the Spaniel

Spaniel Pet Portrait Oil on Canvas
What a handsome chap! Well the picture says it all, 2 year old Buddy is truly gorgeous (and doesn't he know it!) as some of you know I am a little bias when it comes to Spaniels and he really was a joy to paint.

After a sneaky meeting in Swanage I was able to meet Buddy and his Mum Gemma to take a few photos whilst keeping this a surprise for his Dad. I think it's safe to say he was very pleasantly surprised with his present!

Best mates Bizzy and Pebble

vizla and labrador pet portrait oil on canvasAfter buying a few Moo prints and Cheeseboards, Louella, mum of Biz and Pebble, decided it was time to get in touch about a portrait of 'the kids'

I popped over to their beautiful home to meet these two best friends and they really are as adorable as they look!

Pebble just wants to show you all her toys and Bizzy has a constant cheeky look on his face, usually he's up to something.
They were a joy to paint and now sit in pride of place alongside a great collection of Moo's!

Herbie the Pug

Pet Portrait Pug oil on canvasSome of you may remember the Pugs I painted a while back, all 5 on one canvas.... well they have a new friend! Herbie! So it was only right that he needed to have a portrait done too, didn't want him to feel left out.

So the Pugs popped round for another photoshoot, Ned (My Sprocker Spaniel) still looked as confused as ever after the garden was over run by this 'herd' of pugs, is there a word for a group of Pugs I wonder?

Anyway after Herbie posed perfectly for a few pics I managed to do his portrait ready for Christmas. Now he is extremely handsome so his portrait went down a storm....

Chunk the distinguished Labrador

Pet Portrait Labrador Oil on canvasApologies it seems a while since I did a blog and there's been lots of lovely portraits painted in the last few months which I need to get on the website, so thought I would make a start and what better way to do it than with this gorgeous boy.

Some of you may remember a while back I painted a rather adorable puppy labrador called Chunk, well he has grown into a very handsome boy and I had the pleasure in doing another portrait for his lovely owner.

It was such a great experience doing this painting and seeing how he has changed since a pup, and I think you would agree he is definitely one gorgeous pooch.

What is also interesting is seeing how my painting has developed in that time, as some of you know I have now been doing this full time for 2 years which means I have been able to take on a lot more commissions, the more I paint the more I learn and I feel I develop so much each portrait I do. Every one I paint is different and has it's own challenges, even when it is the same dog! I hope you agree but I do believe I am improving with each one and can only thank all my lovely customers!

So I hope you all love the portrait of Chunk painted in Oil paint on canvas

Rain the lovely young Lab

Black Labrador Pet Portrait Oil on CanvasI was asked to paint Rain by her Dad Luke as a surprise Birthday present for his Fiancée. As soon as I saw those beautiful 'give me a biscuit' eyes I couldn't wait to get started!

Rain was described to me as a 'little comedian at times' so this is what I wanted to capture in her portrait. Luke chose me to paint Rain as he felt my style of painting suited her personality, although I paint in oils my portraits are not quite the traditional pet portrait some people may expect and have a more fun, modern twist and this is what I feel helps to capture characters just like Rain.

Indie the Cocker Spaniel

Cocker spaniel puppy portraitSome of you may remember the beautiful Roxy? Well meet the latest addition to their family... this is Indie, the gorgeous Cocker. Roxy and Indies Mum, Louise asked me to paint Indie as a surprise present for her husband and I hear it went down well!

Obviously I had to spend a lot of time with Indie, with lots of cuddles just to be sure I really got to know her, such a tough part of my job! So after sneakily bringing my camera over I managed to get some lovely photos, although it wasn't hard as she is utterly adorable.

So now Indies portrait is alongside Roxy's, just have to wait and see if they add another member to the family next year!
