A Drawing of a Baby and a Chihuahua

Reference Photograph

Portrait Information

Drawing size: 20 x 25 cm (8" x 10")
Medium: graphite pencil on paper
Year of Completion: 2017
Country: Ireland


The portrait was commissioned as a christening present for Lauren's, the baby's, parents. Lauren and Ted, the chihuahua, are always together and the godparents wanted a drawing as a keepsake for Lauren's parents who live in Australia.
The drawing was drawn with graphite pencils ranging from HB to 5B in softness. I decided to keep the background dark for Lauren and Ted to pop off the page.

Client Feedback

"Hi Ivana, the portrait is just beautiful, absolutely delighted with it. I'm sure they will be very happy with this portrait as they sent a video this morning with Lauren playing with Ted so I'm delighted I got you to commission this. Thank you very much..."
