Happy New Year- this year’s pet portrait commissions!

custom pet portraits of 2018 in review

2018 has been a fantastic year! I have had the pleasure of drawing and painting so many beautiful furry faces! Along with painting some more of my custom pet portrait baubles for Christmas, I have had such a variety of models this year.

I hope you all have a fantastic NYE, and thank you so much for following and supporting my pet portraits in 2018 through my social media accounts like Instagram and Facebook. Next year I hope to create so many more along with recording some exciting pet portrait tutorial videos on YouTube 😀 – so watch this space!

Bella the Pug – coloured pencil custom portrait

Lovely Bella the pug’s owner got in touch about a realistic custom pet portrait of her for Christmas! Her owner chose this photo in particular to base the portrait on because he loved that she was in a cute little basket.

I decided to crop the portrait so that there was more emphasis on her gorgeous little face. Please enjoy having a scroll through this gorgeous pug pet portrait as it comes to life!

This was an A4 Coloured Pencil portrait created with Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils on Arches Watercolour paper 🙂

Harry & Mavis- Custom Coloured Pencil Pet Portraits!

These handsome french bulldogs are Harry & Mavis! I had the pleasure of creating an A4 coloured pencil pet portrait of these two as a Christmas present! I really enjoyed this portrait commission, especially through re-creating the fascinating patterns on Mavis’ brindle coat. Materials used were Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and Arches Hot Press Watercolour paper. I hope you enjoy flicking through some ‘work in progress’ pics of their commission 🙂

Don’t forget to check out my Instagram feed for more ‘behind the scenes’ photos.
