fine art pencil pet portraits by commission
Welcome to the Flatcoated Retriever Portrait of Jenson, Liffey and Forrest! I was commissioned by a returning client to draw this portrait for her friends birthday and thoroughly enjoyed portraying them.
Gill Smitherman, UK contacted me via Facebook in 2014 to ask if I would be able to create another Flatcoat Retriever portrait as a special present for her friend. Jenson, Liffey and Forrest are three beautiful Flat Coated Retrievers owned by Mandy Romeo-Dieste and Gill wanted to surprise her on her birthday. I was delighted as I had drawn some of Mandy's dogs in the past and as I absolutely adore the breed I was really excited to get started.
The portrait was drawn to 18 x 14 size and had to stay under wraps until the party! I have added a final scan of the portrait above along with a reference photo, a testimonial and an amazing video of the presentation at Mandy's birthday party. I hope that you can view the video and I cant thank Gill and her friends enough for filming it and allowing me to add it to my website.
Mandy also very kindly collected the portraits I have drawn for her on her sofa to take a photo of them all together, I think they work really well and hope you do too!
I love it. Thank you so much. It will hang proudly with the other two portraits you did for me. Thank you thank you xxxx
I have created a few portraits for Mandy over the years and here are a lovely collection of three together, two montages and this triple portrait.
If you have a Flatcoated Retriever and would like a pencil drawing completed of it, I would be delighted to work with you. Send me photos or ask any questions via my contact page.
