Charcoal :: 61 x 61cm :: 24″ x 24″
ZED is a beautiful Siberian Husky and was commissioned by his owner as a memorial portrait after he had sadly crossed the rainbow bridge only a month prior. Louisa requested that he be in pencil (black & white) so I chose charcoal as the main medium for it’s softness and deep blacks.
The reference photo was excellent in quality but the top of his ear was missing and his chest was out of the picture, so I created a digital mock-up to give Louisa an idea of how the finished portrait would look and also as visual guide for the finished portrait.
ZED was framed with a wide, black and silver pinstriped, Italian timber moulding, top white matboard, inner black timber fillet, bottom soft grey matboard and UltraVue UV70 non-reflective glass.
Framed size: 91 x 91cm :: 36″ x 36″
Zed arrived this afternoon. I am staring at him now and find it hard to take my eyes off him. It is absolutely incredible. You have done the most amazing job. The eyes are perfect and I feel he is just staring back at me. You would have loved the reaction of my class and fellow staff members. The awes and wow’s! I know my husband and family will be impressed too. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication in making him perfect. I love him and will treasure this artwork forever.
