Pastel :: 35 x 25cm :: 14″ x 10″


TROUBLE ~ Ch Glenmave in the Fast Lane, CCD, ORA, QND, a beautiful Toller show dog, was commissioned as a special surprise gift for her owner.

I used two reference photos for this portrait: one as the main pose and the other for her fur colour as it was very particular and not correct in the main photo. Thankfully, her colouring turned out just right, as it can be a little tricky when viewing on a computer screen.


Trouble was framed in a wide, grained timber moulding with double off-white matboards, pewter timber fillet, silver name plaque and UltraVue UV70 non-reflective glass.

Framed size: 56 x 76cm :: 22″ x 30″

Client Feedback

Hi Susanna,
Trouble’s portrait was given to her owner Claire today. She was so, so happy! She had a tear in her eye, which is not like her as she is not an overly dramatic person. It was great to see her reaction, exactly what I was hoping for. 🙂 She said you captured her coat colour and nose and eyes perfectly, and that the portrait felt 3D and very life-like. Beautiful job Susanna, thank you so much. The portrait and frame and everything in between was just perfect! Highly recommended!
Much thanks again and again!
