Dog Portraits for Christmas

Read More

I don’t know about you, but after a number of years, we run out of ideas for Christmas presents. We are always looking for something different, unusual. Something that’s going to wow your loved ones. A gift that shows you have really thought about them, and you really care.

Especially this year. 2020 has been a year of being away from extended families, yet being super close to the immediate family. We’ve definitely discovered what’s important.

Having a pet portrait is a great way of purchasing a unique piece of artwork, and also getting something that is that can have sentimental value.


A watercolour can be full of charm, the medium lends itself to subtle colours and tones, it’s doesn’t have to make such a bold statement as an oil painting.

Here are two examples of watercolour pet portraits.

Watercolour paintings start at £75, this cost is unframed.

Oil on Canvas

I have painted many dogs in the medium of oil on canvas. I always like to finish the paintings with the signature flat colourful background. The most recent triptych uses a proper punch of colour.

However, there are a collection of Beagles that I have painted which use more muted tones.


I will always try to coordinate the painting with the client’s interiors. So it can be anything from a bright vibrant colour to a pale creamy hue.

Oil paintings start at £175, this cost is for a canvas stretched onto a frame approximately 40 x 50 cm.
