This Spaniel portrait of a dog called Poppy was commissioned as a Christmas present for the owner. The ladies daughter was able (with some help from her five year old son) to take a photo of Poppy without her mum’s knowing, making it a great surprise.
Portraits of pets can be painted on a small 20 x 20cm canvas, where only the face is included or, as in this case, on larger frames that allow more of the animal to be included. Prices vary according to the size, number of pets and whether you would like the background included.
