Welcome to my pet and family portrait blog. If you have commissioned a portrait you can see how it is progressing. If you would like to commission me to paint your pet, family or friend then visit my site at www.katetugwellportraits.com
Here is the finished article with another stage thrown in to illustrate some of the subtle details that get added in, like more definition around the eyes, enhanced skin texture and individual hairs painted on eyebrows and hairline. I just hope I've captured the essence and character of a well loved father.
I have just painted the number 68 on slate for a lovely couple in Yorkshire who couldn't find anything in the shops they fancied attaching to the front of their house. If any of you followers would also like a bespoke house name or number then I'm your artist! My husband commented that if they moved next to a number 89 they could take it with them (sigh!).
