Welcome to my pencil pet portrait of Gianni. Gianni is a King Charles Spaniel who lived with his owner Kelly, in Australia. Sadly Gianni passed away at the age of 12 and so Kelly sent us this wonderful email to enquire about having a portrait….
Hi Melanie & Nicholas,
I’m located in Central Victoria in Australia. I’ve been searching on the web to see what pet portrait artists there are out there. I thought your drawings and paintings were absolutely amazing. So “real life” looking!! I very sadly lost one of my dearly loved dogs, a 12 year old Cavalier King Charles called ‘Gianni’ last week. It’s been so devastating. I have drawings of two of our other dogs that we lost a few years ago. I thought I’d love to have one of Gi too…..
Kelly emailed me a lovely photo of Gianni, perfect for a pencil portrait. You can see the outcome below. The portrait was a 12 x 10 pencil drawing, hand drawn by myself, Melanie.
