Bella, Whippet by

Bella, a beautiful Whippet. Completed as a gift and sweet in size at only 20 x 20cm. She was a joy to paint with her big eyes and sleek soft shiny hair. Occasionally I make smaller paintings, email on to chat about yours.

Coco, Cocker Spaniel by

This is Coco, a beautiful Cocker Spaniel. She was painted as a big birthday surprise and happily went down a storm. Such dark tones and shown here with her beloved ball. Gorgeous.

Betty Cockerpoo by Samantha Barnes

This is Betty, a beautiful Cockerpoo that was painted as a special gift for a big birthday celebration for her dogparent. I’m delighted to report that she went down a storm.

Dotty, Lakeland Terrier by Samantha Barnes

This is Dotty, a Lakeland Terrier Mix. A rescue now living a full and happy life with a mummy that makes outstanding flapjacks (our meetings were lovely!) Her background is a lovely fuscia pink but looks much darker in these photographs.

Freddy, West Highland Terrier, Samantha Barnes

This is Freddy, a gorgeous West Highland Terrier. Occasionally I work on smaller canvases, sometimes before committing to larger ones when testing things out. Freddy’s mum saw one of these canvases on instagram and asked me to make her two the same size. This one here is her own dog and the other is a gift yet to be given, I’ll share her soon. Lots of thick impasto work here on Freddy, I really enjoyed working on him.

Olive, Tibetan Terrier by Samantha Barnes

Above here we have beautiful Olive, a Tibetan Terrier. She is one pretty lady with lots of lovely bouffanty hair! I used lots of finger painting here to get just the right texture for her hair. She was so beautiful to paint.

Barney Cocker Spaniel, Samantha Barnes

This is Barney, a beautiful Cocker Spaniel. Barney was an auction winner for a fund raising event that I was only too happy to raise money for. His painting was a surprise for some very happy dog owners who were thrilled with is portrait.
