Five Border Collies
16" x 20" Pastel on Pastelmat

I love to paint all dogs but the Border Collie must be one of my favourite breeds. They have so much vitality, energy and character so it is always a challenge to bring this out in a portrait. These five beautiful dogs were no exception and it was a real joy to pastel them, although I must say I was getting a bit nervous by the time I got to dog five!


The portrait arrived safe and well this afternoon. Lornie and I are absolutely over the moon with it, going straight away to get it framed tomorrow. It shall soon take pride of place on our living room wall. Thankyou so much for your hard work and for applying your talent to the pictures of these much loved family pets. It shall be treasured for many years to come.
