Here is a lovely pencil drawing I completed last year of two siamese cats. I have added the pencils in for scale. I mainly used Derwent graphite pencils here as you can see. I hope you like it!

The portrait of Ozzie and Joey is now complete, framed and on its way to my clients in the USA. Ozzie is the King Charles Spaniel and Joey is the cat who has sadly passed away. It was commissioned by Sylvia as a special gift to give to her granddaughter Zoie.

Sylvia chose the Windsor Wash frame which works beautifully with Ozzie and Joey’s pencil drawing. Its one of my favourite mouldings and the double mount with pale grey colour really brings out the tones in the drawing. I hope you all like it too.

My client also commissioned a pencil drawing of her son’s dog Mango which I will follow this post with. If you would like to commission a pencil drawing too, why not pop over to my website to find out more!

I am loving this frame! It has to be one of my favourites to date. It's called Windsor Wash and it's so popular with my clients. Obviously all of us pet lovers have extremely good taste! Not only was Gus framed in it, Ziggy is below...along with two more of my portraits which will be revealed this week. My framer Amanda is amazing and she deserves a special shout out on my blog today for being so fab.

So my next portrait will be along on the blog soon. It's a big one.....! Stay tuned!!

I have finally found five minutes to sit here and update my blog. The days are flying by here, I can't believe it's February already. We will be booking Christmas portraits before we know it!

Here is a pencil portrait I completed a while ago called Ziggy. He's all finished, framed and sent off to my client. Just in time for a birthday surprise. I have added the final scan along with some photos I took of the portrait with my pencils to show scale on our plan chest. I will post photos of the framed portrait next. I hope you like him!

The drawing of Gus is on its way to my clients in the USA. The portrait has been waiting here to be framed and it's finally complete. I packed it up yesterday and booked it in for collection.

Before doing so I took plenty of photos for our website and social media pages. I have even taken a photo of the drawing on our studio wall! I'm wondering for the small and mid sized portraits whether this is a better idea than taking photos on our mini easel. Let us know what you think!

I have also been up early in the studio today working on our website. Our visitors and readers of our blog can now subscribe very easily on our website at the bottom of every page! We send out a roundup of our blog once a week so you never miss a think. Check it out on our website - www.pet-portraitartist.com

Jubilee and Trinity's oil painting is complete. Nicholas has been working on the portrait of horses Jubilee and Trinity since around the second week in January. Nicholas complete the final details a few days ago. The panting is fully dry and I have taken photos of the portrait up close so that you can see the detail...probably more detail that you would see standing in front of it. The photos as very close up! Nicholas' hand and paintbrush is in there for scale too. The painting is an 18 x 14 oil on Italian Linen canvas and I am about to pack it up and book it in for collection next week.

It's been very busy in the studio this week, lots of things to organise and so there are plenty of blog posts coming up. We are orking the weekend, we have had our Sunday pancakes, home made with banana, pecans and maple syrup...so we are set for the day. It's raining outside but cosy in the studio - what better place to be! More posts to follow!
