About the Commission

This portrait was commissioned by a return client. It was a Christmas present for her friends. She was looking after her two basset hounds Jasmine and Daisy while they were on holiday, so she had a good opportunity to take pictures. They are just so gorgeous with their sad eyes.
The drawing was 25 x 35 cm in size and we kept the background white. I used two photographs to create the composition. I used graphite pencils ranging from HB to 4B.

Client Feedback

"Dear Ivana, I received the picture today of Jazzie and Daisy. My friends will love it. I can't wait to see their faces when they open it! Yet again, you have done an amazing job. Thank you so much.
In the future, I would definitely like to get one of my horses done! So I will be in touch again. I have lots of animal mad friends (I own a stables) so I will definitely recommend you.
Take care,"
