Horse Pencil Portrait Montage

Welcome to my latest horse pencil portrait montage! The horse in question is called Locksie and the portrait was commissioned by my client William here in the UK. The portrait was an 18 x 24 montage pencil drawing. It was traditionally hand drawn by myself, Melanie, here in my studio in the heart of Wales.

William commissioned the drawing to give as a wonderful gift to his wife Annabel on their wedding day in April 2018. Thankfully William emailed me lots of lovely photos of Locksie along with photos of their cat and two Jack Russell dogs which he wanted included. He chose to have a montage portrait so that it could depict all of their pets, along with a portrait of Locksie standing in front of a barn.  Also one of Annabel jumping with Locksie. All of the photos William chose have meaning to himself and his wife Annabel. It will make a beautiful gift on his wedding day, plus something to treasure for many years to come.

William emailed when he saw the finished portrait and I have added it below. I have also added some photos of the portrait with my pencils and when it was framed below….

Hi Melanie
I absolutely love it and I’m sure Annabel will to!! Thank you very much it’s better than I imagined it to be.
Look forward to hearing from you
Thanks again

Horse Pencil Portrait Montage – Photos

I often find my pencil portrait scans are quite harsh, not a good representation of the finished drawings. So I like to take photos of my artwork on our plan chest in the studio. We have plenty of light coming through our windows both sides of the studio and this really helps for taking photos and video fo our work. I always add my pencils on the drawings to help give scale to the portraits.

Horse Pencil Portrait Montage – Framed

The portrait was framed using a plain pine wood frame which works beautifully with my drawings. The richness and warmth of the wood tones are absolutely lovely. It has a double mount too which adds interested and emulates the detail on the edge of the frame well too. I hope you like the photos below.
