In the past 2 years of running my freelance design studio, I've come to realize that 1. I'm one of those crazy people obsessed with their dog and 2. I love painting in watercolor. So it probably won't come as any surprise to you but I am launching my online shop with Commissioned Pet Portraits!
I'm trying not to overthink it. Because that's when I get overwhelmed and self-conscious that it's not perfect. So it's just going to happen. No fancy build up. I haven't worked out all the kinks. I'm really selling this well...
The beautiful girl above is my beloved Ruca. I say 'my' but she's not actually mine. She's my dog Zoey's best friend and belongs to my human besties Beti & Steph. For the longest time I avoided painting her because I was scared of tackling her gorgeous black fur. My brain said "but there's nothing but black!" It took some time but I finally calmed by brain and let my eyes and hands do the talking and see all the beautiful colors in her coat.
So back to the point. I'm going to be opening a few slots for commissioned watercolor pet portraits. Just in time for the holidays! People spend more time worried about family portraits with human children but those of us who've chosen children of the furry kind deserve the same options. So here we go! They'll be available on my shop here.
