From photo to drawing ...

I am a self-taught artist and my favourite method is drawing in pencil on painted boards.  The rough texture of the paint on the board provides an interesting base for use with pencil.  Once finished the boards are spray fixed for protection and can be displayed free-standing on dressers and mantle pieces or I can attach hooks and wire for hanging.

 

I am also more than happy to draw on paper up to A3 size ready for framing.

 

My favourite subjects to draw are animals and children, I love the innocence that comes from them.  I am, however, happy to draw most subjects from quality photographs with good detail. Photos can be emailed to me as a digital image or supplied as a hard copy.

 

A drawing generally takes 2 weeks to complete and I am currently working 4 to 5 weeks in advance. 

 

Each piece I draw is unique, I never create prints of my work( unless asked to do so), so there will only ever be one original piece! - making it a very special and unique gift.

 

Don't hesitate to email me on victoria@originalsinpencil.co.uk to discuss your requirements, I look forward to hearing from you.
