Animal Portraits

         

Sheepdog Cross,2008,Oil on Canvas,18 x 22''

Chocolate Labrador, 2008, Oil on Canvas,12 x 15''


When you commission a portrait of an animal there are a number of options. For the pictures illustrated here, the clients asked me to concentrate on the character of the subject. My procedure was to spend a bit of time with the dog, make a few drawings and then take photographs. An alternative approach is to have an interior or a landscape painted with the animal somewhere in it, not necessarily at the focus of the picture. 


Prices for animal portraits start at 500 for drawings and 800 for a painting. Prices don't include travel outside of London, postage and framing, though I can put a provisional frame on paintings at no extra charge. Please feel free to email me to discuss your wishes.
