I seem to be on a roll with Corgi commissions. This sweet tag team was fun to paint as their personalities totally captured me in their owners description of them.

Meet Teddy and Owain! 14" x 18" on PastelMat using TLs, Giraults, MVs and various pencils. It was a gift to the owner by another friend and there were many happy tears shed. I love that part!

Sonia, thank you! Corgis definitely can be characters.

Viv, love your comments! Thank you! Teddy was described to me as "regal" and poor little Owain as "special". I'm told he's not a bright bulb but certainly shines in his Mom's eyes!

Christel, much appreciated! Thanks!

You're super, eyepaint! Thanks!

Which of many reference photos would you like me to post, fedetony? I was texted about 6 not so great choices of separate dogs and had to pick two and mash them together. I'm glad it seemed to work out successfully! Thank you!

So appreciated, bobbymac and Sheila! Corgis definitely have that bubbly exuberance! I was owned by one for 15 years.

Gosh, thank you from my heart, Chammi!

Triduana, many thanks about the white fur. Hard to do and not use stark white!

That's beautiful! You've done a great job of capturing their expressions too! Very nice work!

A lovely portrait. So sweet. No wonder that tears were shed!

I think my rescued boy is a corgi cross. They are little bundles of character.

I think fedetony means it's so good that he thought you'd posted a reference photo and not the painting! 😁

I cannot look at this without grinning. This friendly pair are so happy and sweet - they will light up the room they are placed in. Excellent work!

Aw what a beautiful capture of expression. I am a dog person so of course I clicked on more corgis. They look like little bundles of love and trouble (especially the one on the right).
