I’m lucky to have been commissioned to paint a portrait of Viv’s lovely Labrador so I thought I’d share my work in progress.

Viv wanted the painting done of her mum’s dog lying on their chair. I’ve produced a couple of sketches to show her and check she’s happy with the composition.

I did rough colours in pastel chalks and the main painting I am doing in acrylics. These are lovely and dry fairly quickly.

I enjoy taking requests for commissions so if there’s something you have in mind I’d be happy to talk.
