I draw pencil portraits on A3, A4 or A5 extra smooth surface drawing pad. I will use only the best quality Artist or Studio pencils.
To prevent smearing and smudging I also spray each portrait with gloss varnish which forms a colourless glass clear coating.
I also provide a framing service at a reasonable price. If you require a frame with your pencil portrait. Please view my frame page for more information.
My pencil portraits will make a great personalised gift for any occasion. Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Christmas Day. My most popular drawings from photographs are for pets. These include dogs, cats, horses or any animal you believe to be a pet.
Customers can order/commission a unique photo realistic pencil portrait from photograph by clicking on order page. Alternatively contact me via my contact form or email me with your photo for more information. I will also accept orders from overseas.
The photograph(s) you send me should be clear and sharp because the sharper the photo is the better the portrait will be. I can only draw what I see, therefore if the details are blurry or of low quality, the pencil portrait will reflect this. I would prefer photos with high-resolution – the higher the better.
I require a non-refundable 20% deposit before I can start to draw. You can pay deposit when you complete my order form and click on submit button, or you contact me via my contact form or email for more information.
When I receive the completed order form or contact form, I will reply as soon as I can to confirm I have received the form and ask for non-refundable 20% deposit if not already paid.
I will send you an email with an image attached of the completed pencil portrait within 1 to 6 weeks depending on workload for you to approve and pay the remaining 80% balance.
