“My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet”

(Edith Wharton)

The Bull

This commissioned piece is oil paint on plywood. I have left the paint very thin on the background in order to reveal the characteristic and marks of the plywood. May 2022. 1200mm x 897 mm

Dante and Elmo

Elizabeth and Tom commissioned this drawing of Dante and Elmo. Elmo is a wild Australian King Parrot that has a deformed beak and quickly realised that visiting Elizabeth and Tom ensured him his meal for the day. Not having met Dante nor Elmo I’m always worried that I won’t capture their personality in the artwork. But happy to share this quote: “You’ve captured them both, their true essence, so beautiful Rita!”

Rembrandt and Derwent pastel on Fabriano paper. 65 x 50cm

Capturing the emotions in the dog’s eyes, ensuring that the personality is there when you look at a drawing has always been my aim when doing a commissioned portrait. The fur is developed through layers and layers of lines drawn. I really enjoyed drawing Poppy, and she reminds me of my own little companion Shiro.
