Pencil Portraits by Carol Leather

based in Cambridgeshire, UK

Animal lover?

Hanging pencil portraits  on your wall can keep precious memories of your furry family members alive for ever.  We all know that our pets don’t live as long as we do, sadly, but they carve their own little place in our hearts and deserve to be remembered. 

If your pet is still enjoying life with you,  now is the ideal time to commission a portrait. 

You have a willing model and can capture photos that shows off its character perfectly.  It doesn’t matter if the photo has distracting items in the background as a pencil portrait artist can eliminate them from the drawing, allowing your pet or pets to be the centre of attention. 

Polly was drawn just a few months before she sadly crossed the rainbow bridge.
Belle and Lulu were photographed in Singapore before they retired to the UK

If you have more than one pet it is possible to have two or more photos incorporated into one drawing.  If one of your pets has crossed the Rainbow Bridge but you have a photo that is clear and detailed enough to work from, all is not lost. 

If you can’t keep pets, but love wildlife in all its varied shapes and forms, do not despair.

You may just find your favourite wild animal or bird in my wildlife gallery, where you can pick up an original or a fine art print.

If you love a species that I have not drawn yet, drop me an e-mail and we can discuss your requirements further. It may be that I have one on my to-do list.

Colour or black and white?

Do you prefer full, natural colour or traditional black and white images?  You get to choose!  Your special drawing can be created for you in graphite or coloured pencils. High quality materials are used to ensure your artwork will last and even be handed down as an heirloom to future generations. 

Would you like a personalised drawing?

The gallery pages show many previous pencil portraits, some of which were commissions and others that I drew for the love of it.

Why not browse to see if you like my style of drawing.  If so, drop me a line from my Contact page and we can chat about YOUR ideal pencil portrait. 

Soon you could be admiring a drawing on your own wall like the happy recipients in the photos below.
