This is a pencil portrait of Bea which I (Melanie) completed at 12 x 10 size on Italian Fabriano Paper. Elizabeth commissioned me to draw Bea as a surprise gift for Charles, her husband, in January 2015. We always love to see what the final result looks like once the pencil drawings have been framed and Elizabeth very kindly took some photos of Bea with her portrait. Aren't they fantastic! We hope you enjoy reading Elizabeth's testimonial email below and viewing the photos.
Apologies that I have not yet sent you photos of Bea's portrait at our house. We have had builders in, unfortunately for rather longer than planned, so I have decided to send you some photos of Bea and her portrait in the meantime.
The picture is a perfect likeness of Bea and also a beautiful drawing in its own right. Charles loves his present and we can't wait to hang the drawing once we have our house back to normal.
My sister, who lives in Kenya and recently arrived here for a visit, likes Bea's portrait so much that she would be interested in a small pencil drawing of their border terrier. She will be in touch.
All the best, Elizabeth
