Four Jack Russells
This is a portrait of a family of four Jack Russell terriers from Somerset. They are the classic short-legged variety of the breed - not the long-legged Parson's Jack Russells you might see at Crufts - and come complete with tails! These four - mother (Midge, far right), father (Ross, centre left) and two offspring (Katie, far left and Olly, centre right) - are typical Jack Russell in character tenacious and inquisitive with buckets of character and energy - and each with its own unique personality. The portrait of the four was commissioned as a Christmas gift to the owner by her partner. I produced each portrait separately using a variety of reference photos and then posed the final portrait accordingly. As a result, I was able to also produce a series of four small desk-top portraits and matching coffee mugs, each with one of the dogs posing separately as a follow-up commission.
