Artist's description:

I love painting dogs, and this gorgeous Springer Spaniel has bags of character. To date, I have painted over 200 pet portraits, some of which can be seen on the Commissions Page of my website I don't just paint dog portraits though .. I've been asked to paint portraits of cats, cows, and even sheep! (Good job I love a challenge!)

I paint from high quality digital photographs and I always say to my customers that it's really important to send me a clear photo of the animals' eyes ... they are after all the window to the soul! It's through the eyes and facial expression that I aim to capture the individuality and personality, so always choose a photograph that best represents your pet. If you have a soppy dog, choose maybe a cocked head pose, a doleful look ... if you have a fun-filled, crazy pet, choose a photo with a mad expression! The madder the better!

I'm fortunate that my commission book is always well stocked, but I'd love to hear from you if you'd like to discuss a possible painting, and I'd be even more delighted to paint it for you.
