Welcome to my Cat Drawing of Rufus & Floyd. Sebastian emailed me to find out if I would be able to draw their two cats Rufus and Floyd as a family gift. We always love hearing how client find us.
Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
Having looked at the works of various artists, I would very much like you to produce pencil portraits of my recently deceased cats – Floyd and Rufus. I am gathering digital copies of photos now.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sebastian emailed lots of photos of his cats. Sadly Rufus and Floyd had passed away so Sebastian emailed all of the photos he could find. We really don’t mind how many photo clients email us, we have a large inbox and are used to dealing with photos coming through.
Sebastian and myself spent a lot of time working on the design for the portrait, many mock ups went back and forth. Working out which photos of the cats would work best together and the overall design of the portrait.
Sebastian wanted the cats together in the same portrait and so we tried to make Rufus be in the foreground as we could only work with a head a chest photo of him, where as Floyd was in the background full body and looking very regal. I think we came up with a lovely composition – and a very peaceful one too. They were drawn at 16 x 12 size which is a good size for two subjects.
Cat Drawing of Rufus & Floyd Happy Clients!
Sebastian emailed once they had received the finished portrait. You can read his email below…
It looks amazing, I am delighted with it.
You’ve done such a fantastic job, thank you ever so much.
If your cats have passed away, there might be a possibility that I can work with the photos that you have to create a portrait for you. The only way for telling for sure is to email or message them to me. I can then let you know which photos might work for a portrait. If you are thinking of having an oil painting of your cats, take a look at what we did with the portrait of Ginger and Maggie…
Finally I hope you have enjoyed reading about my Cat Drawing of Rufus & Floyd. You can contact me at any time, either via WhatsApp or email. I am very much looking forward to working with you soon.
