Dogs in pastel!

Merlin - Maltese Corgi cross - Original Pastel Portrait.

Merlin has been a work in progress and is my first serious pastel for quite sometime. It has also brought me to a point and realisation that I can offer my services, painting original pastel dog portraits. Dogs have always been part of my family and today we are blessed to have Rubie and Merlin in our lives. Rubie is a Toy Poodle / Jack Russell cross and Merlin, Maltese / Corgi.


Portraits are painted in pastel medium over many hours, using your reference photos to capture the unique character of your pet. It is important to create a true likeness and to capture the character of your pet. Your painting will be a treasured piece of art and lasting tribute to your four legged friends.


10% of your commissioned pet portrait will be donated to your chosen animal welfare charity.


  • Each painting is of the head and or body and painted on a 650mm x 500mm soft pastel card. 
  • Your pastel painting will be fixed to ensure the work remains intact prior to being framed in recommended non reflective glass.



  • Please note:- The cost for framing is not part of the service that I provide
