Dog portrait of Peggy French Bulldog


Dog portrait of Peggy French Bulldog

This dog portrait of Peggy the French Bulldog was great fun to do. The person who commissioned it asked specifically for a bright and vibrant background to match to fashion designer it was being given to. Pink and red polka dots had to be included in this fun French Bulldog pet portrait. I was also asked to add an extra touch with a leopard skin print which I incorporated in Peggy's collar. I think portraits work best when totally personal, so feel free to request interesting patterns and accessories.

A dog illustration is the best way to get a modern, unique pet portrait of your dog. They are  bright, fun and colourful and they are pretty unique as well. I haven’t come across any similar style with your pets name in the illustration. If you want a lasting memory of your favourite pet,  a dog illustration is perfect. It would also make a splendid  gift for a friend. Compared to traditional paintings of pets, a dog illustration is quite a bit quicker to produce, and is far more in keeping with modern décor. Each dog illustration, like Peggy the French Bulldog, is printed using a technique called Gilcée . This is an industrial inkjet printer that uses inks that are guaranteed not to fade with time. I use an art printer in London to produce my prints using this equipment and materials. It ensure a perfect full-bodied print every time. Each dog illustration is printed to order, and every care is taken to ensure a perfect print. Every dog illustration is printed onto a thick textured paper. It is a 310gsm Canson cotton rag stock. That means it is really thick. And has a beautifully textured surface to it. Alternative finishes to your dog illustration are available, such as silk or photographic print paper. I can also produce prints with special inks such as gold, or ink with luminescence.
