Description

Commission a genuine original Martin Balmer drawing.

Capture a moment, memories and the character of your special pet companion, in the fluid and vibrant style of my watercolour pencil drawings, with a cat portrait.

I create traditional hand-drawn watercolour pencil drawing pet portraits from photographs that you supply.

With a growing loyal base of appreciators, I have decided to bring my hand-drawn pet and animal portraits to Etsy. Using water-soluble pencils I can mix the best of both watercolour painting and coloured pencil drawing.

The finished A4 (29.7cm x 21cm / 11.69" x 8.27" inches) sized drawing is supplied ready for framing. It is not framed and is not mounted. My drawings are delivered in the UK using Royal Mail Special Delivery, to provide a reliable and insured service for your added piece of mind.


** Drawing from photographs. **

I will hand-draw a picture of your pet using watercolour pencils from one or more photographs that you supply. Please provide clear photographs so that I can see all of the detail I need to see.

Capture the fun and the love of your animal companion, and allow me to illustrate the memories.

I can draw any animal, including dogs, cats, parrots, budgies, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, fish and reptiles. In fact, anything fur, feathers, scales or skin. Why not have a look around my Etsy store and even my web site for the style of the artwork that I create with watercolour pencils.

To allow me to start work as soon as possible once you are ready, feel free to contact me either before or straight after ordering and provide photographs together with the following information: the breed or species, confirming what I can see in the photograph, and, of course, your pet's name. I would also like to hear about any character traits and even any prominent stories and memories that you might want captured in the artwork. You can provide this information through the Etsy Conversation system.


** Artwork Size **

This drawing will be created on A4 sized watercolour paper. 29.7cm x 21cm / 11.69" x 8.27" inches.

Whether the artwork is portrait (tall) or landscape (wide) will depend on the subject and how he or she best fits onto the paper. You can of course express a preference.


** What Do You Get? **

A drawing of 1 animal or pet.

Subject to acceptance, a drawing featuring multiple lower detailed animals may be possible for this same price (such as the 3 black cats example in the photographs). However please contact me for quote on multiple subject animals portraits.

You will receive the actual original hand-drawn watercolour pencil drawing. The drawing is created with real pencils onto paper. This is not a computer illustration, neither it is a filter or processed photograph. This is not a print but the genuine, unique, one-of-a-kind hand-drawn portrait drawing.

The drawing is provided as is, not framed and not mounted ready for you to place inside your own frame.

It is packaged securely and not folded and not rolled. UK commissions are sent Royal Mail Special Delivery.


** What Do You Need to Supply? **

You will need to send me:
- Photographs. The clearer the better. If you can provide different angles and views that also helps.
- Breed, for dogs, cats, horses, etc, or species for other animals. Doesn't have to be too scientific, just confirm what I can see in the photograph.
- Your pet's name.
- Optionally, your pet's character traits, or memories and stories you feel may be useful guidance for me. There may be something you want to recreate within the artwork.

You can send this information through the Etsy Conversations feature. If you do this before ordering this listing, I can confirm everything with you before you pay.


** How Long Will It Take? **

Once I have all of your information, and your confirmed order, I aim to draw the portrait within 2 weeks. Provided you can answer any questions and so forth reasonably quickly I believe a finished portrait can be delivered in the UK (I use Royal Mail Special Delivery) within around 3 weeks, from starting the drawing to delivery.


** What Do You Get? Plus, Legal Stuff **

With this purchase of a pet portrait you will receive the original watercolour pencil drawing, not a print but the actual original drawing. Please note that reprint rights and copyright remain with me, the artist. This commission is for non-commercial personal use only. You can display this drawing in your home or in commercial premises. However, you cannot copy or distribute the artwork and you cannot incorporate and use it in a logo or advertising.

A UV protection layer is applied to prints and fridge magnets to help reduce fading caused by sun light.

I can draw portraits of pets and people. That could be your dog, cat, bird, horse, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster reptile, or, indeed, any other subject, whether fur, feathers, scales or skin.

I use one or more photographs for reference. You just need to make sure that your photographs are clear and focused (not blurry) . Tell me your pet's name, breed or species, and, if you can, something about his or her character or even any special memories.
