Cheeky Charlie – original pastel dog drawing from uk pet artist

cocker spaniel pastel dog portrait commission from uk pet artist

This is a drawing of my dog Charlie, I wanted to show how expressions in a dog are brilliant to capture in artform.  I often get asked to draw pet portraits that are quite posed and traditional however there is a new wave of pet art coming to the fore which is much more expressive with the view of capturing certain characteristics of the pet rather than a staged one.  This is one of Charlie’s many different expressions, its the challenge in the eyes of him wanting me to chase him around the house to retrieve the sock back.
