Dog Portraits

This dog portrait gallery is designed to assist you in commissioning a beautiful lifelike tribute to your pet and features a selection of my more recent dog portrait commissions, where I hope that you will be impressed. I specialise in highly detailed fine art watercolour portraits, and have more than 30 years' experience.

I like, where possible to meet each subject personally, where I recognise its unique personality and character. I then take a series of photographs, from which to work, and make notes on colour, markings, blemishes etc. Gifted with a photographic memory, I can recall each individual animal whilst projecting their very character and soul into the detailed traditional watercolour dog portrait in my studio.

To personalise it further I can add pencil remarques to the main dog portrait, depicting it in various positions and situations, its aptitude or to illustrate its relationship with its owner.

Bespoke Framing

Every portrait is presented framed and mounted to your choice, from a large selection of frames and mount boards, and is ready to hang, where it will be a timeless tribute to your pet.
