If you’re looking for a gift idea for someone who loves dogs and art, I think I have the perfect solution: Louise Jarvis Art – The World of Dogs -An Artist’s Perspective. Recently released, The World of Dogs Volume 1 contains 75 of Louise’s remarkable and lifelike pen and watercolor dog illustrations.
From Louise: “Sometimes I have ideas that can be small and sometimes I can have ideas that are very ambitious……..This #DogArtbook project is definitely one of the most ambitious I have come up with to date. The thought of creating a book of portraits of the pedigree dogs in the country was something that really excited me.To put my art in a publication showcasing the country’s top examples of as many breeds as possible was a real joy. From the smallest of breeds to the giant breeds – no two dogs are the same and I took it as a personal challenge to cover as many breeds as possible and show the various characters within each breed. I choose not to go for the typical show poses (for those of the dogs who are top show dogs) to draw from, but to draw relaxed compositions of dogs happy in their daily lives.You can see more of Louise’s art by following Louise Jarvis Art on Facebook. Louise is currently looking for these breeds to include in her next volume. In addition to her book, Louise also has some wonderful tea towels, mugs and pillows for sale in her online store. Her products are available for international shipping.
