fine art pencil pet portraits by commission
Welcome to my Boxer pencil drawing of Milo! This was a wonderful commission and such a lovely face to draw, its all about the eyes! I really enjoyed drawing Milo and you can see more photos of the portrait if you scroll down, along with reading about the commission too.
The photos of Milo below were taken in my studio after the portrait was complete to help give scale for my viewers to see the size in relation to my pencils.
Catherine Cave, UK contacted me in 2014 as she was interested in having their family Boxer Milo drawn as a surprise gift for her husband. Sadly Milo had recently passed away and he was very much missed by the whole family. Catherine wanted to give a special gift to her husband and also have something that the whole family could share.
I was delighted to be given the opportunity draw Milo and I absolutely loved the photo that Catherine emailed. The photo of Milo was so sharp it enabled me to capture lots of lovely detail within the portrait which I drew to 12" x 10" size. I have added a final scan of the portrait above and included a few more photos of the drawing below. Also a lovely testimonial from Catherine when she saw the finished drawing via email. Catherine had her own local framer to frame the portrait, however if you would like to use my framer, I have a lovely selection of frames which you can see here - Framing Gallery.
Wow - thank you SO much it's perfect! How very talented you are! So excited to see it!
I love drawing Boxer dogs! If you have one of your own I would love to see photos and draw you a portrait just like Milo's. Visit my contact page to contact me today!
