Digby the wire haired Dachshund.
This is my best friend our “Dibgy” an eleven year old wire haired Dachund who is every ones friend. Never been sure whether he sits on my chair or the other round.
He has an incredible nature and one which epitomizes the breed in general. We have had many Dachshunds over the years, some of which have appeared at the prestigious Crufts dog show.
Stan Allsopp my father was a dachshund breeder for many years.
Where do you start with this, well the beginning, after painstaking drawings from life and pictures taken with my other friend a Nikon D40 camera, I built up the work over weeks during the early part of 1995, the result is this portrait of a very noble dog our Digby the Dachshund.
Original painting is 24 by 36 inches; I intend to publish this original work as a limited edition Giclee, linen canvas print. Linen is the best quality medium to use it has a texture and look like the original painting
Prints are shipped in a strong cardboard tube. Linen Giclee prints are produced by Fine Art Trade Guild printers, they are well respected within the Fine Art Industry and have well over thirty years experience.
Pigmented inks are used extensively by Abacus Fine Art printers, inks pass the high light fastness standard, which means your purchase will look as good as new for many years. I always advise my customers to hang their Giclee prints out of direct sunlight this helps preserve their color over time.
Thank you for reading this page.
