Two Portraits delivered


This weekend I braved the pouring rain to travel down to the Gold Coast to deliver two portraits. These are very special portraits as they were a gift for some good friends. Dakota and Belle now take pride of place on the wall in their home.

I did so enjoy taking the photographs and then painting these portraits. Dakota, in particular, was a challenge as he is so dark and it was hard to see sufficient contrast.

Visiting the two dogs (and their owners) this weekend, I am happy that I managed to capture something of their unique personalities.
