Painting Pets


Growing up, I'd never really been interested in drawing animals or pets. Unconsciously, I was always sketching or doodling people: in restaurant colouring books or on the backs of napkins (even if they were stick figures with slinky-coiled hair). It all makes sense now when the thought of a landscape commission immediately makes me want to yawn.

I decided to paint this portrait of my dog, Sassie, as a surprise Christmas gift for my parents, but also partly because I felt I needed more practise when it came to paintings pets. As you can see from the photo to the left, getting Sassie to stay still for the camera - without the bribing of treats - proved much more difficult than the painting itself!

If you're interested in a pet commission, in this style or done realistically, get in contact and I'll see what I can do!
