Most of my commissioned art work is done as oil paintings, so it was a fun change of pace to do this pencil drawing portrait for my client Jules!
To celebrate a good friend's birthday, Jules wanted to surprise her with the perfect gift . After considering different options, Jules decided to really make the present special by having it custom-made, so she reached out to me to create art as the gift!
Knowing how much her friend Allison loves her dog, Jules decided to have me capture this in a portrait of her Allison with her dog. To accomplish a cleaner, simpler look, she opted to have me do a pencil drawing instead of a full-blown oil painting.
When I delivered the drawing, Jules was thrilled -- but most importantly, Jules shared that Allison had received it and absolutely "LOVED" it!!
