Get an Original Colored Pencil Portrait of Your Pet

Have you ever wanted an original portrait of your pet or your favorite wildlife animal?

Colored pencil portraits are an economical, yet gorgeous way to have a portrait of your favorite pet created. These portraits are painted using professional Prismacolor colored pencils on artist vellum. They are also sprayed with a preservative to keep the colors bright and long lasting.

The example of the Great Dane puppy is one of my favorite colored pencil portraits. I painted it (colored pencil artwork is actually considered painting) from a reference photo of a Great Dane puppy. It is an 8"x10" size for easy framing.

A colored pencil portrait can be painted using any high quality photo of your pet. Try to choose a photograph that shows your pet's personality and expression. A pet's portrait makes a great gift and a lasting memory of your pet.

  1. Really lovely artwork! I love the pencil strokes, and his eyes are just gorgeous.

  2. Thanks Darla. I just looked at your pencil portrait website. It is amazing what you can do with a graphite pencil!
