This was a customer commission of their friend's dog that had sadly passed away. It was a lovely gift idea, it gave the owner a little something to remember his furry friend by.
This painting has been completed in acrylic paint, to see my journey and step by step process of completing this dog please continue to scroll through this photo thread.
Jack Russell Jimmy
This is my dog, Jimmy. While I was studying pet portraiture I was asked to study many different mediums, this was one of my first coloured pencil pieces.
I love my dog so this probably won't surprise you that this is one of my favourite pieces. I have it up in my husband's office and it is also my company logo. Please scroll through to see my progress when drawing this piece.
Coloured pencil piece, a5 size. One of the smaller pieces I have completed and I finished it within 2 days.
2 days is very fast completion for a piece of art but if you select a small layout, a simple headshot and with a plain background it can be done. It is something to keep in mind if you are buying a drawing last-minute as a gift.
For this piece, I focused on the very striking eyes of this cat. It has been completed in acrylic paint.
Eyes can be very tricky sometimes but I really enjoyed trying to capture the depth and colour.
Sometimes I think it is a fun challenge to try different animals. It doesn't always have to be traditional dog or cat.
This fox looks like he's got a cheeky look on his face, it was fun drawing him. This drawing has been completed in coloured pencils.
