Creating Lasting Memories of Your Cherished Friends
A pet portrait makes a really special gift for those who simply adore their furry friends. Perhaps for a loved one, your family, or for yourself. These pet portraits do indeed make memories for a lifetime.
Check out the Gallery for samples of pet portraits and other wildlife pieces.
Working from my home studio, I create realistic pet portraits using digital reference photos of your dog or other pet.
My pet portraits are produced by employing a combination of traditional drawing techniques, applying pigments with pencil and blending with brushes and/or solvents, using high quality artist materials and supports, to ensure that they can be cherished by you for years to come.
Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils and Faber-Castell Pitt pastels are my favourite tools of the trade, along with Pan Pastels, typically used on natural or coloured Pastelmat. Pastelmat is a 360gsm premium, acid-free archival, card surface available in a range of 12 shades including my personal favourite, dark grey. I also love working on Grafix 0.005mm matte double-sided drafting film (yes, you can draw on both sides) where I can achieve wonderful detail.
