A local artist did a pastel and pencil sketch of my picture of Tess and Charlie. Would love to know what you think

Hi, I think it's really lovely! I would love to do the same with my Belle and Bobby.

Although I think the expressions are slightly different from the original picture, which is interesting.

Are you going to frame it? It's a nice keepsake.

So beautiful! I love it! :) I have a painting of my dogs in my living room, it's my favorite picture by far.

Looks great! I also had a portrait of my two furbabies done a while back!

Yes, I know her. She sketches it totally freehand which explains the difference in expressions. I cannot link to her site for fear of spamming. It took her 10 days and cost me 180. The size is 20" x 24"

I really want Chamberlain's and Sasha's picture painted. I think this summer we are going to hire a photographer and have "family pictures" taken! haha Our dogs are our children for time being!

I know what you mean! My daughter is 20 this year and we call our two the furry kids. Lol
