Deutsch Drahthaar Pet Portraits in Pencil / Hutch
Portrait Drawings in Graphite Pencil by Katja
Pet Portrait Commission Info
This is a little drawing in graphite pencil of a Deutsch Drahthaar. This is a rare breed, but I was lucky enough to draw Hutch. I have previously drawn a full-body drawing for the same client of a Malinois, but that pencil drawing can't be found in my galleries. Todd will use both drawings for a logotype.
The paper used here is Frabriano 5, a paper which used to be my favorite. The close-up below is much larger than actual size, so it might look a bit rough.
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Size: 25 x 20 cm
Year Drawn: 2012
Subject: Dog / Deutsch Drahthaar / Hutch
Commissioned by: Todd M. McLester, USA
The Reference Photograph
Todd sent me several nice photos of Hutch for me to choose from. I ended up choosing a photo which would fit the older drawing I created several years earlier. I deleted the background, but left the shadow and floor. The original photo is to the right.
Great job, Katja.
I'll be using this drawing of Hutch as part of my Bluestem Kennel logo, along with the drawing you did of Bosco.
