My Top 10 Dog Portraits from Pinterest

My Top 10 Dog Portraits

My Pinterest board of Dog Art is my most popular board. So today I am going to share with you my 10 most popular paintings or sketches featuring dogs.

There is some amazing talent out there and I think it should be shared.

I have tried to trace the dog portraits back to the original artist or website wherever possible and provided links.

What do you like about a dog painting?

For me, the dog has to look happy, I can’t bear to see dogs looking sad. The art must be good but I look for something extra in the dog’s expression. Action pictures are popular with me personally, especially on a beach or in beautiful countryside.

These are the most popular pins on my Pinterest board.

10. Harley by Carole Rodrigue Oil ~ I couldn’t find a dog breed for this dog but he looks a very happy and handsome chap.

9 Now, this looks like one mischievous pup! I can understand why this portrait is popular because it has the cute factor as well as being a fantastic artwork.

Laura Hardie

6 This is one of my personal favourites. I love the expression in the Cocker Spaniel’s eyes and the casual way she holds her tennis ball. Laura Hardie is an Edinburgh based artist and this portrait was done in coloured pencil.

5 I was blown away by some of the paintings on this Russian artists site. This dachshund puppy has been painted in watercolour. This looks just like my dachshund Darcy when he is asking for a treat, and I adore those wrinkly legs!

Springer Spaniel Painting by Hazel Morgan

2 This oil painting is so popular on Pinterest. I like to think that the Springer Spaniel has just been for a long walk and is just about to fall into a deep sleep.

Mark Whittaker Pet Portrait and Wildlife Artist

1 This is the most pinned dog portrait from my Dog Art board on Pinterest. It is the most beautiful pastel painting of a Golden Retriever. Mark Whittaker is a Welsh artist who specialises in fine detail pastels. I had a look through his website and all his paintings are stunning.

My Personal Favourite

This was so hard to choose but I narrowed it down to two portraits done by the same artist, D J Rogers from the United States

Watercolour Artist D J Rogers

These watercolours epitomise everything I love, firstly dogs (especially dachshunds) and the sea. In addition, the dogs are running free and look like they are having the best time. My dachshund chases birds with exactly the same dogged determination that this one is showing. I imagine that the paintings are done on a hot Summer’s day, with a fresh cool breeze.

Here are a few dog portrait prints which are available to purchase from Amazon (with affiliate links below) These are all the work of LA Shepard. There are loads of different breeds to choose from, I think they are stunning.

Olde English Sheepdog

Yorkshire Terrier

Labrador Retriever
