I finished a second ink and watercolor portrait of the happy dog pals, Oyuki and Gabriel. It's interesting to see the pictures side by side because they're the same but have their differences. One of the dogs and owner have moved away so the dogs can't play together any more, so one of the portraits will be sent to Gabriel's mom. I love how these turned out! Contact me if you'd like a portrait done of an animal you know.
My latest commission is complete of Oyuki and Gabriel - two happy pups on top of a pile of bark. They were fun to do because they looked so content. It was an interesting challenge of painting white dogs since much of them don't get any color. I introduced some of the background colors into the shadow areas. Light reflects the colors around.

I will be at the Redmond Cat (or Craft) Revolution happening on June 2 from 10:00-3:00. It's being hosted by The Whole Cat and Kaboodle and Cafe Cocoa, in the lot next to the Redmond location where Grand Peking used to be. A portion of proceeds will be donated to help homeless and feral cats at the Feral Care Sanctuary located in Bothell. I will be donating a pet portrait commission for their raffle. Come and see and donate and maybe you can win that! There will be a variety of cat retail and craft vendors, and food trucks. Cats and food trucks! Some of my favorite things! Come by and say hi.
LT was a recent commission of a dearly beloved cat that passed recently much too early. He evidently had a lovely personality and really did have one yellow eye and one blue one. Ink and watercolor.
I am available for pet portrait commissions. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I am available to do ink and watercolor pet portraits for you, a family member or a friend. I love dogs and cats and have four furry ones at present: three medium and long haired cats and an Aussie. I work from your photos and can capture if your dog is dignified or a goofball, or if your cat is just being a cat! Contact me for more information at email@example.com or look in my shop for more options.
My friend, Naoko Eric Kita, in Japan is a translator from English to Japanese. One of her latest books is coming out, 名画のなかの猫, translated from "The Book of the Cat." She is sending out promo cards to booksellers in Japan and my watercolor of her cat Sakura is on them. It’s kind of fun to be indirectly part of this project.
I’m available for pet portraits, but no promises that yours will end up on book promotions!
Here is the lovely Delilah from my most recent commission. She looks like a lovely dog but lives in a different state so I may never meet her. I love her crossed legs!
If you are interested in a ink and watercolor portrait of your favorite furry friend, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the link for the item my shop. I believe in giving back and supporting places that make a difference. To that end, 5% of any orders of my pet portraits or sketches will be donated to the Seattle Humane Society. My current three cats were adopted through them.
I like to draw and paint animals. I have three cats and a dog of my own. The trouble is they move around too much, so I rely on photos. However, my Australian Shepherd is somewhat camera shy and it's hard to get her to look at me when I'm taking the picture. I follow various Instagram accounts with dogs as the primary characters. I saw this of Lilly the Aussie (lillytheaussie) and asked her person for permission to draw a picture and she said yes. Here's the result. Such a happy looking dog. Contact me if you'd like an ink and watercolor drawing of your animal friend.
