Kita had recently passed and her owner asked me to do a portrait of her as a gift to his wife. They had few photos and those they did have was lacking in detail, however I was able to work from one photo and had to find as many references as I could online to ensure her colouration was more natural , given that taking a photo using flash has a tendency to bleach details and colour. It is very challenging to do this as it can end up looking like a different dog but luckily they loved the finished piece!
Hi Karen, I just wanted you to know that I absolutely love my painting of Kita. Thank you so much, you have done the most amazing portrait of him. He was my best friend and my little boy and the painting has been hung in the living room so we can all admire him everyday! Thank you again xx
