GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER
Pastel, 8” x 6” / 20 x 15cm
How familiar is this pose?!
Every time I sit down my Vizsla will plonk herself between my feet and look back at me with this expression. When I shared this portrait on social media, one follower called this the ‘why have you stopped scratching my ear’ look!
So often clients chose the best reference photographs and this was no exception. Although it wasn’t the clearest photograph available, it shows so much of the dog’s character that it allows for a portrait which captures not just the physical features and markings but also personality, movement and familiarity.
