Pencil Portrait Stories

Pencil Drawing of Murphy

Welcome to my latest pencil drawing of Murphy. The portrait of Murphy was commissioned by a returning client called Karen here in the UK. Karen had previously commissioned a drawing of a horse called Charles as a gift for her friend. She also had a print made for herself. You can see the portrait of Charles on my pencil pet portraits website in the gallery.

This time Karen wanted to commission a portrait of her own dog. Karen’s first idea was to have a montage drawing and I created some designs for her. However there was one particular photo that was perfect for a portrait and really suitable for a single study. So we opted for a 12 x 10 drawing. Murphy is a beautiful little chap and I thoroughly enjoyed drawing him. I hope you like him too.

Karen emailed me when she saw the final scan which you can read below..

Dear Melanie,
Thank you so much, what a stunning picture of Murphy! You have captured him so very well, it’s is lovely. I am absolutely delighted with it and am really looking forward to receiving it. I will be getting it framed in a frame similar to the picture of Charles.
Love the picture, thank you again.
Best wishes
