Dog Portraits

​'drawings & paintings'

Nicola Anderson

I have been drawing and painting my whole life; my favourite things to draw & paint are animals, people and still life. I did my first paid pet portrait commission at the age of 15, of a Labrador named ‘Ruby’ which I drew using graphite. Ever since, I have done numerous others, mostly using watercolours and some using graphite. It is usually takes a few days for me to complete a commission to my standards, as I’m a perfectionist, but I’m always happy with the final portrait! The best part of painting peoples pets is seeing their reaction when I give it to them, and knowing how happy they are, It’s always a good feeling making people happy through art.
