Pet portraits crafted with pencil and love
A pet portrait makes a really special and unique gift for those loved ones and friends who simply adore their animals.
Creating a pet portrait from your photos
What could be more personal than a beautiful, hand drawn portrait of the real characters in our lives. A pet portrait is a beautiful way of honouring your beloved pet and it will make for an original and interesting piece of art for your walls.
Each pet has special qualities from unique markings and colouring to the expression in their eyes, and the texture of their fur. I make sure to capture all of their unique features in my pencil pet portraits. I can draw any animal, not only cats and dogs, and as long as I have a good quality image reference from which to draw, I simply need a few photos to create the perfect pet portrait.
Capture their personality in a pencil pet portrait
If your photographs don't capture the whimsical and loving expression you've often seen on your pet's face, the creation of a pencil portrait can bring that expression to life. My chosen medium is pencil because I find it helps to bring the expression to the fore quickly. One this is established, I focus on the individuality, likeness and framable composition for the overall portrait.
Starting the commission process is easy, and more information on commissioning a pet portrait and my prices are available here.
