German Shepherd Portrait Painting

Fine Art Dog Pet Portraits by Commission

Welcome to Mark Lovett Studio, where American artist, Mark Lovett, accepts a small amount of dog portrait painting commissions each year. All paintings are traditionally hand painted in oil on the finest linen canvas and will capture your pet’s unique identity and personality with great detail and accuracy. Each painting stays on Mark’s easel until it meets his high artistic standards, and tremendous care is taken to create a masterpiece that your family will treasure forever. Clients from all around the world commission Mark to capture their beloved dogs in oil on canvas.

This german shepherd portrait painting was created from a variety of photos that the client emailed to us. Below are two resource photos that the client sent us.




We considered several different crops, and sizes, and eventually settled on a 12×16″ vertical pose similar to the black and white photo. This stunning german shepherd, “Athena”,  passed away,  but was so loved by the family that they wanted a memorial portrait painting that would accurately capture this beautiful pet’s soul, and keep the wonderful memory alive forever.
