Commission of 'Fritzie vom Wildförstersee' - Flat Coated Retriever Pet Portraits

Mandy Romeo-Dieste, a previous client, asked in 2013 if I would be able to complete a 20 x 16 pencil montage pet portrait of a stunning Flat Coated Retriever for her friends birthday. The Flatcoat in question was called Fritzie vom Wildförstersee, or 'Frog' for short. Frog went for her first visit to Crufts in 2013 and won best bitch. Mandy emailed me lots of lovely photos of Frog and together we designed a montage and also found a photo of a frog with a crown on, for the top left corner of the drawing. My pencil montage are fantastic for showing many different aspects of your dog, so in this instance, the full body show pose study in the center with four other sketches around the outside really helps to show all of the characteristics of your dog, contact me today for your own Flat Coated Retriever Pet Portraits.

The portrait was presented to Anna, the recipient, in Germany on her birthday and Gill (another previous client) very kindly took video of Anna opening the portrait which you can see and play below. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house! There is also a lovely photo of Anna holding her portrait too. What a wonderful commission, I have been so very honored to be able to portray Frog for Anna and I hope that she enjoys it for many, many years to come.
