BLACK AND WHITE DOG DRAWINGS

B/W DOG DRAWINGS

Black and white dog drawings are the most popular style of pet portraits requested by my customers. A beautifully crafted black and white dog drawing of your four legged friend can start from as little as £90 for a fully mounted and framed 10×8 portrait. A dog drawing can make for a very unique and personalised present for that someone special in your life and very often bring tears of joy when presented.

A black and white dog drawing is a very personal thought about gift. Unlike vouchers or a bottle of the persons favourite tipple, a dog drawing is quite emotive and can evoke happy memories to the viewer. It can be a very emotional gift, as many of the dog drawings I have completed have been for animals that have recently passed away, making them an even more precious gift.

    I WANT A DOG DRAWING, IM JUST NOT SURE WHAT STYLE?

    B/W DOG DRAWING – HEAD PORTRAIT

    The classical pose when thinking about dog portraits is the head and neck pose. Going back through history this is one of the most popular poses for a lot of animal portraits as it frames the head and reflects the animals character exceptionally well. With a head portrait it gives a weighted presence to the eyes, being larger than standard portrait, and leads you deep into the animals soul as well as depicting the dogs facial expression and features in a very balanced way.
    Please see prices/ordering page for full details

    B/W DOG PORTRAIT – FULL LENGTH POSE

    As well as reflecting the true stature of larger dog breeds, this pose has also given rise to being the perfect pose for dogs when accompanying a human figure.Going back through history, Lords and Ladies of the Manor have been painted and drawn, sat aside their canine companions in large scale works of art. Although nowadays, this cliche pose has been switched for a more relaxed pose, of all manor of people posing with their animals. With the huge rise in social media usage and smart phones, people are taking photos of anything that moves, so as soon as that great pose of someone with a cute pet arises, people become snap happy. This in turn has led to a huge rise in people wanting a personalised black and white drawing of them with their pet, the more common being a black and white dog portrait.

    The full length pose, particularly as a drawing can make for a superb piece of artwork to adorn the wall of your home. The variation of what you can have has no limits, from a single black and white dog portrait, through to a pencil drawing of 2-3 people + 2-3 animals, not just dogs either. So be as creative as you like. If you have lots of ideas but are unsure exactly what to have in your black and white pencil portrait please give me a call I’ll be happy to talk through it with you.Please see my gallery for other works

    BLACK AND WHITE PENCIL PORTRAIT – ACTION POSE

    Although one of the great poses in pencil portraiture, the action shot can be quite tricky to catch on camera. The pose of a dog leaping, jumping or simply just being active can take one or two tries to get just right. The use of modern smart phones and digital SLR cameras can help greatly, but try not to worry if you don’t get it right first time, just click away and more often than not you will get the perfect shot when you least expect it. If you have multiple photos and would like to use different subject from each that can be done, I will create a plan of exactly how the overall composition will look but combining them on the computer to create a digital version of the drawing for you to approve prior to starting work on the black and white drawing.

    HIGHLY DETAILED BLACK AND WHITE DOG PORTRAITS

    The realism of the dog portraits I undertake is what amazes my customers, a pencil portrait that is so lifelike people liken my drawings to photos, they are that detailed. The detail I capture is only achievable if the reference is of high enough quality, with well defined shapes and good tonal values. Thats said, with the use of certain software, I can enhance some photographs, particularly old ones, enlarging them to emphasise certain aspects of the shots, giving more definition. This will then make them the ideal drawing reference
