    Loui and Pinky, Mandy’s bereft owner was my Postman and Mandy had died so this picture was done from a photograph. While she looks the sort of dog who would have patiently stood for a long, drawn out, portrait it wasn’t possible. What I was trying to do was not make it look like a photo.

    Oh my God!!! Such a beautiful portrait Jenny! Elegant and heartfelt. I bet the postman was very pleased

  • Yeh he was. Later I was commissioned to do another watercolour of her, then three race horses. Funny what you find yourself doing.

    This is beautiful….they are such quiet natured dogs…despite being fast…it certainly does not look like a photo.
