Today I have been working on my latest commissions at Bardills Garden Centre in Stapleford Notts. I had arranged to meet one of my clients who was very excited to see the portrait of his cocker spaniels Barnie Cloughie and Tilly, three beautiful dogs with great expressions. It was sweltering hot though. Lots of linseed required to stop my paint drying too quickly. This was for mr and mrs Lee who had a lovely collie Doberman cross sadly departed now but not forgotten.
