Below are the Christmas commissions that were all completed and received as gifts for the special day - if you wish to see how they came together, please click on any of the images. If you are thinking of booking your own Commission with me and wish to know more, you can visit my COMMISSIONS page which explains the very simple process.
It appears that my side of the Art studio is full of Boxer dog Artwork at the moment. I have been asked to produce quite a few BOXER dogs over the years although I do all other breeds too but I am currently completing 3 separate Coloured pencil portraits for Commissionee's which are as follows:
A 10" x 12" of HOLLY, an 8" x 10" of LENNOX and a 12" x 16" trio of Boxers called ABBIE, DOLLY & ARTHUR
Holly (far right) is nearing completion now and I hope to finish it tonight dependant on my obsessive 'tweaking' necessity. The trio of Boxers (top) are still in the very early stages and the base tones are currently being laid down so the fine detail has yet to be added. This is the second portrait I am completing of Lennox (bottom left), the FIRST portrait was completed last year and his Mum, who absolutely loves her boy, wanted another portrait of him done and chose this lovely pose of him.
If you are looking to Commission your own Pet portrait and wish to find out more, you can find some information on my COMMISSIONS page, just drop me a line if you have a bespoke portrait idea - I love a challenge!
I attended the NAYBR Fun day along with a couple of good friends of mine and their 4 Boxer dogs on Sunday the 13th of July 2014 and thought I would post a few photographs from the day that I managed to capture. One of my pet portrait vouchers had been purchased and donated by Jet Rutherford & Jackie Pritchard and was included in an auction at this very event of which I was pleased to hear that it raised a wonderful £75.00 towards the charity and the whole days event raised a whopping £5,000!! The day was extremely warm but thoroughly enjoyed by us all - hopefully I will be going back next year and well done to all those who organised the event and work tirelessly throughout the year to rescue and help re-home the Boxers that come into their care.
