DOG-FRIENDLY BUYS: Iain Welch Art & Design

Ernie, as painted by Iain

“Can I tempt you with a portrait of your hound for sixty pound?” That sentence instantly caught my attention and made me fall in love with Iain Welch’s watercolours a little bit more than I already did.

Not only are his dog portraits beautiful, but they are very much affordable – and all Iain needs to get started on a commission is several full-length photos of your pooch. For me, that certainly wasn’t a problem as I have literally hundreds of Ernie!

Our family “pawtrait”

Iain specialises in drawing dogs but was more than happy to create a bespoke “family pawtrait” for us, which now has pride of place in our lounge. The quoted price – which increased to Β£65 in September 2019 – was for a picture that, when mounted, would fit into a 10x12in frame. Iain also offers a smaller 8x10in option for Β£45 and postage is always free for UK orders, while it’s Β£5 for the rest of the world.

Iain, who has been painting since he was small, lives in Herefordshire with his two dogs, Ro (a collie-lab cross) and Bella (a mix of all sorts of wonderfulness!) When he’s not busy drawing dogs, Iain teaches art classes and as well as custom pet portraits, he also has a range of prints and cards for sale in his online shop. For more information or to commission Iain, visit his website.

Look out for the cute freebie on every envelope!
