Pencil Portrait Stories

Pencil Pet Portrait of Jenkins

Welcome to my Pencil Pet Portrait of Jenkins. Mr Jenkins was a fabulous horse, owned by Jo’s father. This portrait was very special to my client and you can read one of Jo’s very first emails to me….


Morning Melanie,
The photo you have chosen to use is great, excuse the plaits!! I know you must see some stunning horse’s but that’s what Mr Jenkins is to me. I think I told you he is a retired police horse and a true gent. He was the last horse my Dad rode at the age of 82 before his sudden death three months later. Because dad was in the mounted police for 32 years and taught me to ride. I am really looking forward to seeing your work. Is it possible to have ‘Jenkins’ written on it somewhere?
I hope you and your partner are getting over the loss of your special little doggie, they certainly leave a little hole but the memories are always there.
Many thanks again

Jo requested to have her portrait framed and you can see photos of the completed horse portrait below. In addition Jo requested a n engraved bronze plaque too. We love adding plaques to our portraits and they really make the whole commission unique and personal to our clients.

Pencil Pet Portrait of Jenkins – Framed

Here is Jenkins framed along with his plaque and I am thrilled with how the portrait has turned out. I have to say bronze is fast becoming our favourite colour for plaques. The text is very readable, it’s a very subtle colour while complimenting the frames and artwork well. We also have quite a few mouldings that are suitable for plaques now. If you are thinking about having one for your portrait just let us know.
