Wildlife paintings, portraits & pet portraits by New Zealand Artist Karen Neal

"Pumbaa & Timon"

(Oils on Linen Canvas) 18x24in

A commissioned Oil Painting for a surprise christmas present (2015).

Best buddies Pumbaa (golden retriever), and ginger moggy Timon, who reside in Christchurch.

The painting composition was made up from these two photos.
Also colouring and detailing was taken from several reference photos supplied, this also gives me a little insight into the character of pets when several photographs are supplied. A photoshop composition is supplied to help visualise how the painting will look before proceeding with the painting.
