Pet Portrait of Mitzy in Oils

Welcome to my last commissioned Newfoundland dog pet portrait of Mitzy. I completed this oil painting just yesterday and it will be on its way to the UK on Monday or Tuesday.

Last Christmas Sally’s husband contacted me regarding the possibility to create a painting of this lovely dog for her. Then in May Sally herself contacted me with Mitzy’s reference photos to paint from.

Sally wanted a landscape portrait with the background just like on the reference and so I was happy to paint for her. I just loved creating this portrait and I love the outcome and so is Sally.

I painted this commissioned Newfoundland dog pet portrait on Italian Linen Canvas, size 16″x12″.
