Jessica Adkins Bob Campbell I picked up my drawing from the post office today. I waited until I arrived home to open it and I must say as I unrolled the drawing my hair stood on my arms and it brought instant tears to my eyes. It is perfect and such a beautiful tribute to my sweet boy, absolutely breathtaking!!!! I cannot Thank you enough for this precious, beautiful, one of a kind gift!!! I am going to have it matted and framed and when that is done I will share my beautiful drawing here in the group. Thank you so very much Bob, from the bottom of my heart I am incredibly touched and forever grateful for such a thoughtful wonderful gift❤
Welcome to Perfect Pooch, the website with the wrong name! Well; it seemed like a good idea at the time because I started drawing dogs, especially Jack Russells! Now people ask for dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, parrots and just about everything in-between. I still focus on dogs primarily but I'll draw just about anything I can fit on the paper.
"Do you do paintings as well?" Well I can, but I prefer the subtlety of pencil and a well placed eraser means it's pretty forgiving. I've not seen a painting yet that truly represents the sitter. I'm still to see a good painting of The Queen (well one that looks like her anyway!)
I work from photographs. Luckily iPhones and any good cameraphone can take great shots. The trick is keeping the animal still for long enough to take a picture with the right amount of detail. You'll probably notice if I miss off a blurred ear! You can mail me any photo you like; I'll take a look and get back to you with a "yes" or "no". If it's a "yes" I'll let you know the cost - anything from £40 to £75 depending on the subject, complexity and shipping. By the way if you're the world's worst photgrapher I can take a pretty mean picture myself so all is not lost.
Most drawings are supplied minus mount and frame (see How To). If you want the picture mounted and framed I can do it for you and quote separately. And, if you live in Timbuktu or Cradely Heath we can post finished drawings, sealed in a tube; or send the fully-framed drawing by post or courier. We've delivered as far as Oregon so far!
Now take a look at the gallery. I'm adding pictures all the time.
