Dog Portraits in pastel and charcoal

Welcome to my dog portraits gallery. These are the most popular pet in our homes. They become our faithful friends and are cherished members of our families. It’s unsurprising we want to immortalise our special companions as custom dog portraits in pastel and charcoal. They are always forgiving and each dog has individual character traits which are never forgotten. Years after our beloved companions have passed away we look back with fond memories of our times spent together. Below you will find a collection of custom hand painted dog portraits, each created in detail from family pet photos. I use the finest artists quality materials for my pet portraits – faber castell pitts, stabilo carb’othello, panpastels and derwent pastels on archival quality specialist Clairefontaine pastelmat paper. These materials will ensure your dog portraits from photos last longer than a life time. I spend many hours ensuring that not only are my portraits realistic and life-like but that all my portraits capture a memory in time, something to be treasured each time they are looked at. I work with all of my clients on every portrait to ensure the finished piece is perfect and everything they hope for following their advice and instructions.
