Domestic Animal Portraits

Domestic Animals

I’ve been commissioned to paint 100s of dogs over the years.  The responsibility for creating a piece of work that will become a family heirloom, lasting more than a lifetime, is one I take very seriously.  Meeting each dog with their human family is an important ingredient in my work and so I will visit, wherever possible, for a gentle photo shoot at the dog’s home.

Once a month I do a ‘round Britain trip’ from my studio in The Pennines to the South coast, to visit clients and deliver finished paintings everywhere in between.  A photo shoot usually takes an hour with the choice of final image and background colour resting with the client.


60 x 60cm

I have approximately 3 months waiting time so always ask a 50% deposit to secure a slot in my work schedule.

Prices for these formal portraits start at £580 for a 60 x 60 canvas and include the photo shoot.

Loose Sketch

In addition to these formal portraits I can now offering a loose sketch, also in oil but on fine artist’s paper, for these works the client would need to send a high resolution j-peg.  The finished work would be supplied rolled in a tube and so would need framing by the client.

Prices for loose sketches start at £250 for approx. 50 x 50cm
