1. Cat portrait, oil painting of "Bogey", 10x14inches oil paint on canvas in my 'Finest Style"

    I had good photos to work from for this one, so could get well into that fur and lighting!

    I have two styles of oil paintings:
    1. FINE QUALITY ( not so realistic, but likeness is still just as important. This style is more painterly, relaxed and modern, well suited to source photos that are of an everyday quality for most people, such as taken by mobile devices. )

    2. FINEST QUALITY - THIS SAMPLE (realistic with attention to detail, so fur looks like fur, noses look like noses and eyes like eyes! - but very good source photos are needed for this. This is a classically inspired style of oil painting, but takes longer to execute than the second style, as layers are built up over each other for the desired effect of depth and life. )

  2. Dog portrait of "Beti" Black Labrador, 10"x14" oil paint on canvas in my "Finest style".

    I have two styles of oil paintings:
    1. FINE QUALITY ( not so realistic, but likeness is still just as important. This style is more painterly, relaxed and modern, well suited to source photos that are of an everyday quality for most people, such as taken by mobile devices. )

    2. FINEST QUALITY - THIS SAMPLE ( very realistic with great attention to detail, so fur looks like fur, noses look like noses and eyes like eyes! - but very good source photos are needed for this. This is a classically inspired style of oil painting, but takes longer to execute than the second style, as layers are built up over each other for the desired effect of depth and life. )

    The source photos were poor to ok, with typical mobile wide-angle distortion. However exposure was ok for a usually difficult black dog and there was reasonable detail in key areas.

Dog, cat & horse oil paintings & drawings.
Portraits that are realistic but not for it's own sake, rather because I love fur!
