fine art pencil pet portraits by commission
The montage drawing of Max and Bentley, two beautiful Jack Russell's were a lot of fun to create. I have completed a number of Montage pencil pet portraits of Jack Russell Terriers and thoroughly enjoy working on them. Scroll down to read more about the commission and see two wonderful photos of the portrait with both dogs.
Vicky Emmet, UK, commissioned a Jack Russell Terrier Pet Portraits of her two gorgeous Jack Russell’s Max and Bentley in 2012. Vicky had previous commissioned a pet portrait from me and she wanted her two new dogs portrayed to display in her home too.
Max and Bentley are such active dogs and Vicky had plenty of photos of them. So we thought a montage portrait would work really well. This way I could capture them running, playing, carrying sticks and leave the central studies as heads for detail. I created a number of designs for Vicky to see. We decided to make it fair, each study should be a single pose of each dog and then two poses of them together. The final portrait was drawn at 18 x 14 in size which was a lovely size to fit them both in comfortably.
Vicky had the drawing framed with her local framer and very kindly took photos of both Max and Bentley next to the portrait. which you can see below along with some testimonials too!
Melanie it is wonderful. You have captured my boys so perfectly. I must get it off to the framers so I can get it up on the wall.
Will get a picture of it when it is framed and I will endeavour to get one with the boys in it. It may take a while as sitting still isn't their strong point!

Vicky had her own local framer to frame the pencil montage drawing, however if clients prefer me to make all the arrangements I can do. Visit my framing gallery as I have lots of choice with regards to frames!
If you have a Jack Russell Terrier and would like a pencil drawing of them, perhaps even as montage style drawing, you can email me your photos and ideas at any time. I look forward to working with you and your dogs soon!
