Cat Pencil Portrait

Welcome to my latest Cat Pencil Portrait of two cats called Archie and Roly. This portrait is for returning clients Kirstie and Gordon (UK). They previously commissioned a portrait of their beautiful cat Dudly who is sadly no longer with us. You can see him on his dedicated page – oil portrait of Dudley.

Kirstie was given the portrait as a birthday surprise. She was able to help design the portrait so that she could have input into it’s creation. It combines a portrait of Archie full body on the left in the garden, along with Roly bottom right showing his big fluffy tail in his basket. Finally the smaller drawing above depicts Archie sniffing Roly’s ear.

Kirstie was thrilled with the portrait. I have added a photo of the drawing below, in addition to photos of the portrait framed and some photos from Kirstie too…

Hi Melanie,
Great excitement today! The portrait has arrived! We wasted no time opening your superb packaging and had the work of art hung within minutes.

Our gardener, Mike is here today and hung it for us then took time to admire your drawing.   He is an artist in his spare time and was blown away by your talent as we all are and the frame and mount could not be more perfect. 

We put the box on the table ready for opening and guess who claimed it as his!

So many thanks Melanie for such a beautiful work of art.   You and Nicholas have a rare gift indeed!

Best wishes and many thanks again for all your painstaking trouble,
Kirstie xx

Cat Pencil Portrait – Photos

Photos below show the portrait unframed and laying on my plan chest. These photos help to show the pencil drawing in a more natural way. I have alas added a few pencils in the photos for scale.

Madison Frame

Kirstie also chose to have the portrait of Archie and Roly framed using our Madison Taupe Frame matched with a ‘Morning Dew’ upper mount, which is a bit like a sage colour, along with a Hayseed cream inner mount. The Morning Dew colour therefore works perfectly with the Madison Taupe and as you can see below compliments Kirstie’s home decor beautifully!
