My latest pet - and person - portrait

Finn and Nancy 2019-04-16 72dpi.jpg

Here is my latest pet portrait. This is of Finn and Nancy, his person. I love drawing different breeds of dogs because they are so unique. I really enjoyed this picture of Finn and Nancy because having them together really showed off just how large Irish Wolfhounds can get. Also, the two of them were clearly happy and content together.

Labradoodle Puppy Past and Pooch Present Pet Portraits

Great job on aliteration, huh?! I recently finished a couple of pet portraits of a cute labradoodle for Christmas presents - one of her as a puppy and the second as she looks now. This was a fun commission since I got to do two similar but different portraits. My challenges were her curls and trying to keep her fur looking soft. I did them with my favorite approach of ink and watercolor. I work from client photographs and typically have a two-week turn around time from the scheduled start. See the Pet Portrait Item in my shop for more details.

Lilly the Aussie


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.
