Pencil Portrait Stories

Pencil Pet Portrait of Bix

Here is the Pencil Pet Portrait of Bix. Gill Austin, a returning client, contacted to see if we would be able to draw a portrait of her dog called Bix. Gill also called my art studio to discuss the commission and this was her follow up email.

Thanks for your time on the phone just now. As discussed, I’d love it if you could do a portrait of our Labrador, Bix, for my son’s birthday. The 14” x 11” would be the perfect size…

I have added a final scan below of Bix. Gill requested to have some of the chest draw of Bix. I felt it would be idea to fade it off slightly which gave a great effect to the portrait. I have also added a photo of the portrait on my plan chest with my pencils to help show scale. We hope you like it too!
