Neeko is the latest addition to my commission portfolio. Although sadly gone but not forgotten, he was a breed called Lhasa apso. They are considered to be affectionate and great companions. Along with the other characters in this montage, I had a lovely opportunity to capture his gorgeous furry, hairy face in watercolour. It's never a problem for me as painting dogs is up there amongst my favourite subjects!
As ever, my painting starts with the eyes. I really look hard to try and capture the personality of my subject and the eyes are the "window' to the soul. Behind each painting is a character that brings love, laughs and a bond that really is indescribable.
Thank you to everyone who gives me the chance to capture their loved ones in watercolour, it is always truly appreciated x
