Portraits and Pet Portraits Painted by John S Holmes

Darwin and Terrier

Oils on canvas, 80 x 100 cm

I am an artist who is interested in painting portraits of people and animals.

Both pet and owner are modelled in the same painting.

As well as dogs and cats, I enjoy painting a variety of types of animals  including birds and horses.

Oil paints have been my passion for many years. All of my portraits are in oils on canvas. 

The unique scenic landscape of the Lake District is right on my doorstep and is an influence on my work. Seeing animals in the wild is something I enjoy.
