Welcome to my most recent pencil drawing pet portrait of a gorgeous dog called Biscuit. I was so delighted when my client Jason sent through the photos for me to work from. From just the initial view of the photos, I knew this was going to be the most beautiful portrait.. also I knew I was going to really enjoy drawing it too. The chosen photo was perfect for a pencil drawing.
Jason commissioned the drawing as a gift for his friend as Biscuit had sadly passed away recently. He wanted to gift his friend a beautiful drawing as a keepsake. Something for his friend to remember Biscuit by for years to come.
Jason requested the portrait to be a 12 x 10 drawing which was the perfect size and shape for her. Jason is a very well known TV and Film actor here in the UK. He has worked on some amazing films around the world. I was so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with him. I thoroughly enjoyed drawing Biscuit, one of the best portraits this year.
Pencil Drawing Pet Portrait – Photos
Here are a few photos of Biscuit’s portrait on my plan chest, also with my pencils to help show scale. The photos I feel always tend to show my pencil drawings much more naturally. I think, in addition, you can get a real feel for the graphite pencil texture in them. The paper is a warm white colour which works beautifully with the graphite.
Pencil Drawing Pet Portrait – Packing
I have been experimenting with how we present our pencil portraits recently and this is a quick snap of my most recent design of packing. Biscuit’s portrait is first wrapped as I usually do, in cellophane. I then wrap the drawing in brown paper accompanied by one of our fabulous stickers on the front. I also accompany my pencil portraits with a care sheet and personal letter which you can see in the photo too. My packaging is always evolving and so if I choose another format I will post it here for everyone to see.
Finally this has been one of my most favourite portraits to draw to date. If you would like me to draw a portrait for you to give as a gift for a friend, please let me know. Together with your photos, let me know which are your favourite and we can chat about which might work best for your pencil drawing pet portrait.
