Lauren Carlson Walcott's Uses Color to Augment Her Dog Paintings

Dog paintings by artist Lauren Carlson Walcott transform drab canines into vibrant works of art. The Philadelphia-based artist used watercolors and acrylics with flair to create her dog portraits. Vibrant colors were chosen to complement and bring out each dog's personality.

The inspiration behind Walcott's dog collection was her childhood pet. The way that dogs could dramatically shift people's moods prompted Walcott to represent that visually. Combined with her love of color, the dog paintings were a perfect way for her to destress.

Walcott's goal was to "capture the spirit and soul" of her canine subjects. Each carefully chosen color represents what Walcott felt best represented that dog's essence. She is currently available for custom paintings of your favorite pet.
