The portrait of Holly the yellow labrador was commissioned by Tina for her brother and sister-in-law for a joint 60th birthday present. Holly was very elderly and not in very good health when Tina placed her order and while I was working on the portrait she sadly passed away.
Tina gave me a lovely picture of her on the beach and we decided that a large detailed full-body portrait would work well.
See how her portrait progressed:
“I thought you would like to know my brother & sister in law were absolutely thrilled to bits with the portrait of Holly! She is already on the wall!”
