Obi - Dachshund

Having a unique commissioned painting of our little Dachshund Obi has captured his unique personality on canvass forever.

Carole is exceptionally talented at interpreting a still image of a dog but somehow managing to also capture their unique qualities.

The detail in this painting is nothing short of phenomenal, even down to the hairs on his ear. Friends have commented that it's almost a photographic image.

This will be one of many commissions we request and I look forward to seeing more of Carole's talent in interpreting our family and pets. Thank you so much for doing this it's a unique gift that's simply irreplaceable!

Rufus - Labradoodle

"The painting was completed in three weeks. The final result is absolutely amazing! Carole has the ability to capture a dog's personality. Rufus is a very gentle kind boy and this comes through. His eyes and fur are captured perfectly.
Carole e mailed to show all the stages of the painting from initial sketches to the finished article . This process allowed us to discuss any slight changes and tweaks
Along with the finished painting Carole gave me a memory stick showing all the various stages in the project which is fascinating .

I thought the price was extremely fair and the whole experience very straightforward and immensely enjoyable. I can't wait to get my Goldendoodle Ludo " done "!

Carole is a delightful person and was my present a success ? Well suffice to say my husband was in tears on Christmas morning. Result !

Carole has really managed to capture Autumn's personality. The family Christmas present to Mum will be difficult to top in years to come"
