Drawing of 'Charlie' the Wheaten Terrier

Portrait Information

This drawing is 25 x 30 cm (10 x 12 inches) in size and drawn with graphite pencils on paper. The beautiful terrier in the portrait is Charlie. His owner commissioned the drawing in 2018 as a keepsake for herself, as Charlie passed away. She wanted something special to remember him by. The drawing is set in a park where Charlie loved to walk. You can find more information on the commission on my blog here.

Client Feedback

"Hi Ivana, Just picked up Charlie from the post office. You are so talented, the scan was beautiful but nothing compared to seeing your real work. I couldn’t be happier, very emotional seeing it for the first time because you captured him so well, brought back so many happy memories. Thank you so much."
