A coloured pencil drawing is a wonderful way to create a beautifully detailed portrait of your pet. Pencils are great for creating all sorts of different textures, especially fur. I draw the head and shoulders of your pet which allows me to capture all the characteristics and expressions you love about them. However, please let me know if you would be interested in a full body portrait and I can give you an accurate quote.
I work on high quality 100% cotton watercolour paper which is chlorine and acid free, guaranteeing long conservation using professional quality artist’ pencils. Professional mounting is provided in the costs below and framing can be arranged in addition.
In order to create the best likeness and detailed portrait of your pet, I require high quality photographs taken in natural light. I’m happy to work from a few photographs if you are having more than one subject as it is hard to get them all to look great in one photo! Feel free to ask if you have any questions. For more information on this, take a look here.
Once we have confirmed the size and reference photographs, I ask for a non refundable 30% deposit to book your slot. This will be sent in an invoice via email. I will be able to let you know an approximate date for when I will be starting your portrait and will keep in touch with updates of the drawing so you can see the progress.
The costs below are for detailed and realistic coloured pencil portraits, including a double mount in an off white that compliments the paper. Sizes refer to the portrait size, mounting is in addition to this and is always made to a standard frame size. If you require a size that isn’t listed please email me for an accurate cost. For additional pets in the same portrait, please add £75 per pet.
Postage in the UK is £10.00. Please email me for an accurate cost for delivery overseas. Collection is free, I’m based in Andover, Hampshire
If you would like to become a collector of my wildlife artwork but I haven’t yet created a piece depicting your favourite animal, then please get in touch to discuss commissioning a piece. I work in both coloured pencil and acrylic, creating wildlife pieces in either medium.
All of my wildlife pieces are professionally framed, and created using high quality materials.
