This is Hattie a beautiful Golden Retriever who is to be the subject of my next portrait. This portrait is going to be a surprise birthday present! I took the photo of Hattie - a free photo shoot is included in all regularly priced portraits. I like to be able to take the photo myself as I know exactly how I need the photo to be to do the best portrait I can do. I also love to meet the pets I draw before I get started as it helps me with the process and I feel makes for an even better portrait.

The finished watercolor portrait. I am pleased with the way it came out and particularly like the way the horse's coat shines. I hope my client will be pleased... I know this photo means a lot to her as did the horse depicted in it.
This is the beginning stages of my latest commission - a 7"x10" watercolor portrait. I start by lightly drawing in a contour drawing. This was a great photo to work from...
