Pet & Equestrian Paintings Suffolk
Throughout my career I have been repeatedly asked to paint portraits of family pets especially dogs and horses. It is fascinating to watch the expressions of the owners when they view the finished paintings for the first time! As with the first viewing of any portrait animal or human an expression of emotion is evident.
In 2001 I was asked to produce a painting of famed jockey Frankie Detorri on his equally famous horse Dubai Millennium. What a challenge that was! Exciting and most enjoyable! Not in this case but the pets and their owners frequently visit me in my studio. These visits are always interesting and often unpredictable but a likeness is always assured. One pony and its rider (neighbours) used to visit me at my front door during the painting. The commission happily concluded I was treated to a guided ride to his house up the road.
As with portraits of children, patience is needed to render a good likeness of a pet usually aided by photos provided or ones I have taken myself.
