I have been working on a portrait or two just lately, but really needed a break! The break took me back to my all time favourite creature! Painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas, with love.
Spots before the eyes – literally! This is yet another experiment – to see if I could make it work! I wanted this fellow to be stepping out of the gloom, watching his prey.
I am pleased with my first try at this… and it seems to be popular too – all great!
Painted in oils on 40 x 50 cm canvas board.
New style try-out
I thought I would try a different style – a little more abstract than usual and far less detailed! This is the result! This giraffe was great fun to do and turned out better than I expected!
The tiger too was a new attempt at doing things differently. Both good fun!
The giraffe is on 40 x 50 cm canvas and the tiger on 40 x 40 cm canvas and both are painted in oils.
I apologise for the camera quality – both pictures are more distinct in real life!
Another pet portrait
This lovely chappie is a much loved pet. He is owned by the child of a close friend and I wanted to make a great likeness of him for them both.
He’s painted in oils on a 30 x 40 cm canvas.
If you have a pet you would like a picture of in oils, do get in touch and we can chat about it!
I spent some time doing this one as this dog is really special to me! My boy Bo is four now and such a character! No doubt you too have an animal that is special to you. There can be such joy to be found in a good relationship with a pet, don’t you think?
Bo is painted in oils on a 40 x 40 cm canvas. He’s not for sale, but I can make you a picture of your own pet if given a clear photo!
