Rusty’s Pencil Portrait

Welcome to Rusty’s Pencil Drawing! The portrait was a 20 x 16 inches drawing commissioned by a client in the USA. My client Verity took a number of photos of Rusty out in her garden on a sunny day from a variety of angles. Consequently, this was really helpful and allowed me to really get a feel for Rusty and his character. Verity sent me a few emails and I have added a couple below for you to read. I very much enjoyed creating Rusty’s pencil drawing and I also hope that you all like it too!

Dear Melanie,

Thanks so much. The portrait looks beautiful: it captures Rusty very well in his more “thoughtful” mode – more common as he ages. I really look forward to seeing Rusty’s pencil drawing in the flesh, as it were.
Best,
Verity

Rusty’s Pencil Portrait Photos

In addition to sending Verity the final photo above, I also took a few more natural photos below with my pencils to show scale. This allows clients to see the portrait and the colour of the paper in a much more natural way, therefore having abetter idea of how their portrait looks in real life. Once Verity has had the portrait framed she will take photos. Consequently, I am very much looking forward to seeing them! Hopefully Rusty will model with the portrait too!

Hi Melanie,

I meant to follow up to let you know my husband was delighted with the portrait. We plan to see our framer this weekend and I will send a picture of it once it is framed, perhaps with Rusty in dog-person, if he can be persuaded not to lick it while next to it…
Best wishes,
Verity
