Irish dog breeds watercolour painting, Linda Byrne, Kerry Blue, Kerry Beagle, Irish Wolfhound, Red Setter, Glen of Immal Terrier. Irish Terrier, Irish Water Spaniel, Wheaten Terrier, Red and White Setter Illustration

Creating artwork of animals is definitely a growing favourite of mine. Inspired by a trip to Crufts, I painted these watercolour paintings of dog breeds that are native Irish breeds. Researching the various breeds was fascinating, I never knew there was an Irish breed of Beagle! I particularly loved painting the texture of the curly coat of the Irish water spaniel. Having curly hair & a poodle myself, I may have to use this technique again in the future! The most famous breed of them all…. probably the beautiful Irish Wolfhound. A favourite that can be found at most Irish castles around the country.
