Boxer Dog Drawing

Welcome to my latest Boxer dog drawing of the gorgeous Lola. Linda emailed me a few months ago and asked if I would be able to get a pencil drawing completed and framed for her husbands birthday in November. The timing was going to be close. Linda told her husband John that something exciting was being made for him. She said that it would be ready soon. Thankfully I was able to was complete the drawing only a few days after the special day. Read the testimonials email below from Linda.

Lola’s portrait was 16 x 12 size. However, when starting to draw I felt it would be much better with a little more height and less width so the overall size was 15 x 13 inches. Lola was actually standing on decking, however we knew that the odd angles and lines of the decking background would have been distracting.  So we opted to use grass to stand Lola on and it worked really well. I have added some photos of the portrait before framing below.

Hi Melanie,
Just to let you know that Lola arrived safely yesterday – thank you! It is absolutely amazing. John was delighted with it! We both became quite emotional when we saw her again…. It is so life like, you have captured her so well, even her funny old back legs – and her feet!!! Every detail is there.  I know the whole family are going to love it too.
Thank you so much again Melanie – we couldn’t be happier!!
Linda

Here is a photo of the portrait when it was mounted with a double mount of Hayseed and charcoal grey. The colour and tone combination works really well for Lola.

Boxer Dog Drawing – Framed

We agreed that our Madison frame would work really well for Lola’s portrait. It is so stunning, it is one of our favourites. Linda also ordered an engraved mirrored silver plaque too with the words ‘Lovely Girl’ Lola on, which really finished everything off beautifully. I hope you like the finished portrait!

    […] In conclusion, the photos below show the portrait of Merry framed. Amanda our framer framed the portrait for us. Nicholas chose to have the beautiful Madison Taupe frame. In addition to the frame, the inner mount is a lovely taupe colour to match the frame and it pulls everything together stunningly. This frame also comes in a slate colour too which is therefore perfect for my pencil drawings also. You can see an example of the Madison Slate version on my blog page for my boxer dog drawing.. […]
