Digit - Brindle Boxer in Coloured pencils
The owners of Digit had already commissioned me on numerous occasions in the past to recreate their Boxer babies and having recently completed his brother (Silas) & sister (Ariel), Digit was the next to undertake. I took this photograph myself and it was unanimously decided this would be perfect for the reference as it captured his gentle features and beautiful dark eyes.
MEDIUM: Coloured Pencils
THE COMPLETED PORTRAIT
THE CREATION PROCESS
I am lucky in that I am able to visit the Commissionee's home to take my own photographs for the reference photograph to ensure the images are taken in daylight which allows a natural capture with the perfect balance of colour tones, so there were no adaptations needed on the Artwork. All of their Boxers are so well trained and well behaved (ok!,most of the time ;)) that I never have problems getting great photos when I am there.
TESTIMONIAL FROM THE CUSTOMER:
All I can say is WOW!!! Thank you so much Karen xxx
Here are other portraits that the Commissionee asked me to produce for them. All have been completed in Coloured pencils.
