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% acid free drawing paper with 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 good 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.

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.
