At home painting dogs
I am accompanied in my London studio by Reggie our British Bulldog and my latest muse. He is the inspiration behind my most recent dog paintings. He claims to be my guardian, but really he is only part dog and part teddy bear in disguise.
Although originally a feline fanatic, I have recently succumbed to the joys of dog ownership and with it, the motivation to explore painting dogs. I am in awe of the work charities such as The Dogs Trust and Battersea Dogs Home do to help care for and re home dogs in need, please feel free to visit their sites and donate if you can.
Dog paintings in different styles
The complexities and intricacies of each dog makes for very interesting subject matter in a painting.
Not only is every breed of dog different in their physical working characteristics, but even within a family of dogs, each individual dog may have a very different personality.
Painting Dogs is Painting Happiness
Dogs are the quintessence of happiness, always pleased to see you, and excited to work and play. It’s their wonderful dynamism, vigor and love of life that makes painting dogs such fun.
Below is a selection of my latest dog paintings. If you are interested in commissioning me to paint a pet portrait of your canine companion, please contact me at my London studio. You will find me and my furry companions.
