Horse Pencil Drawing

Welcome to my latest horse pencil drawing. The portrait of Duker was commissioned by Lizzie as a surprise for her mum Jane. Lizzie ordered a gift a portrait voucher as Jane’s birthday was fairly soon after Lizzies initial contact. She also felt it would be lovely for her mum to be able to choose which photo to use as the basis of the portrait.

Jane was thrilled with her birthday present! She proceeded to send photos of Duker for me to work from. One photo in particular was perfect for a portrait and was Jane’s favourite. I used the favourite photo as the basis of the portrait and others for detail.

The portrait of Duker was a 20 x 16 inch size drawing. It was traditionally hand draw by myself, Melanie using graphite pencils. You can also see a few photos I took of the portrait below once it was complete.

Lizzie emailed when she saw the final photos of Duker. Jane also emailed and if you scroll down the page you can read Jane’s email too!

The photos I have taken below show Duker’s portrait in my studio on my plan chest. I also took photos from an angle for you to see the portrait a little more clearly and close up. Because of the size of the portrait I have added my pencils in there for scale too.

Hi Melanie,

Wow! Amazing!!
Thank you so much.
Many thanks and Happy Christmas 

Lizzie

Hi Melanie,

It is fantastic. You have captured his eye perfectly. I am also so pleased you enjoyed him. I will send you a photo and I can’t wait to hang him. May I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas.

Jane.
