Eddie was a beautiful looking, much loved dog that suddenly passed away. He was commissioned by Allison for her partner Albert as a memorial painting.
I think this one is currently my favourite. This was originally going to be a pencil drawing, but as the dog had such black fur, I thought it would make a far more remarkable painting than drawing. That was definitely the case! Sometimes portraits start of a bit slowly and can take quite a bit of adjustment between layers, but this one came together almost straight away! It was an absolute delight to do, and I was really pleased with the outcome, as was Allison and Albert.
Client Testimonial from Allison
“Thank you so much Fiona. The portrait of Eddie is everything I dreamed of and so much more. You were amazing to deal with every step of the way in creating this gorgeous gift for my partner in memory of his precious pet and we are both so grateful to have such a beautiful reminder of him in our home!”
