Thierry Poncelet Style Dog Portraits

A Touch of Fun!

Take a look at our Thierry Poncelet Style Dog Paintings, all of which, are completely custom-made and hand painted onto canvas using Winsor & Newton oils. Dog Artists is based in London but do offer Free world-wide delivery.

Sometimes you may want your dog’s portrait to be a bit more unique and fun. Dog Artists has actually painted quite a lot of dog portraits where your dog’s head is put on a human body. These Thierry Poncelet style portraits have become so popular over the years but it’s not really so surprising when you consider that we as humans have a close connection with dogs. For example take a look at Nula below.

The thought behind this….

The thought behind this is that when painted properly so the dog portrait looks natural, the portrait shows your dog now taking on human characteristics. What’s great about commissioning your own bespoke dog portrait with Dog Artists is that you can choose the attire you want your dog painted in to suit his or her personality and character. Is your dog’s character quite serious perhaps a military uniform might be appropriate?  Is he/she gentle and caring perhaps something like a ball gown or suit. The choice is completely yours!

Heres an oil painting of Max, the German Shepherd, painted as The Count of Monte Cristo. Max’s owner says:

“One word – “wow!”.  I thinks it looks amazing and I know my husband will be delighted….The portrait arrived safely today and is truly wonderful.  It will be even more special to us now as sadly we had to have Max put to sleep yesterday.  Thank you for organising such a beautiful tribute”.
