Commission of 'Jenson, Liffey and Forrest' - Flatcoat Retriever Pet Portraits
Gill Smitherman, UK contacted me via Facebook in 2014 to ask if I would be able to create another Flatcoat Retriever pet portraits as a special present for her friend. Absolutely Yes!! They are one of my favorite breeds to portray. Jenson, Liffey and Forrest are three beautiful Flat Coated Retrievers owned by Mandy Romeo Dieste and Gill wanted to surprise her very good friend on her birthday. I was delighted as I had drawn some of Mandy's dogs in the past and as I absolutely adore the breed I was really excited to get started.
The portrait was drawn to 18 x 14 size and had to stay under wraps until the party and birthday had bee, once the portrait was presented, I was able to add the drawing here, on our studio diary, facebook and google+ page.
I have added a final scan of the portrait above along with some reference photos below, a testimonial and an amazing video of the presentation at Mandy's birthday party. I hope that you can view the video below and I cant thank Gill and her friends enough for filming it and allowing me to add it to my website. Mandy also very kindly collected the portraits I have drawn for her together on her sofa to take a photo of them all together, I think they work really well together.
