Man's Best Friend

It's said that a dog is man's best friend, and that is true for a recent commission. I was asked to paint a special double portrait as a birthday gift, featuring a young man and his best friend Tommie.

I used a couple of different photographs for this ink and watercolour sketch. I was able to combine the best photo of each of my subjects for the final composition. 

I love creating paintings to commemorate a special friendship.

Framed and wrapped, ready for delivery - and yes, I always forgot to take a photo before the cellophane goes on...
