A gentleman hired me to create this pawtrait for his lovely girlfriend's birthday. It was a pleasure to paint this little character, his black coat certainly tested me and I found adding prussian blue helped to create definition in the shadow areas. Happy birthday Misch!

TESTIMONIALS

 "Helen from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you very very much for such an awesome pawtrait of our lil Lissydoo. Words cannot express how I feel looking at it, as probably witnessed today on my first viewing. I know my partner will be over the moon with what you have achieved, and for that I am eternally grateful on such an outstanding job, words fail me." Travis, Port Hedland WA
