What Ru & Bee's owner says...

"I wanted a portrait of my two working cockers, Bee and Ru. I already had pencil drawings of my other dogs so wanted one to compliment it. I found Amanda via the internet, looked at the work on her website and made contact with her. I gave her a bit of character history about the dogs, together with photographs to give her an idea of what they were like.
After agreeing pictures to be used and the layout, Amanda helped with ideas on something to give the portrait an extra little something (we eventually came up with reeds as the dogs spend a great deal of time in the river near my home).
At regular points along the portrait journey Amanda emailed scans of the work in progress – I didn’t have to go back to her with any alterations as they were just perfect. I was always in awe that someone should have such a talent.
I was absolutely thrilled with the finished portrait, Amanda had brought life to the dogs and had captured their essence and love of life. Amanda was very helpful – I decided to create a photobook of the different stages and scans and Amanda provided higher resolution scans to make the finished book clearer and more professional"
