Thank you Colleen for your testimonial regarding Jacob’s Portrait. Your testimonial has now been added to the Testimonials page on my website @ www.wendyjanesheppard.com
“This portrait is amazing, the feeling one achieves on viewing it, is from any angle, Jacob actually follows you around the room with his eyes, it is almost if his head is moving, incredible really, he looks absolutely life like.
Apart from myself, many persons that have viewed Jacob’s Portrait are quite amazed with the likeness; also the rug he is resting on is identical with the folds and tones.
Wendy Jane Sheppard in my estimation has really captured my Jacob perfectly. The tones are true and blending perfectly with Jacob’s coat, and whole body, his way of sitting, resting in his usual position. Even I am astounded at the likeness, so happy with my Jacob’s portrait I can cheerfully recommend that Wendy Jane Sheppard is more than capable of being the Portrait Artist for you, be it an Animal or Human Portrait.
I can thoroughly recommend Wendy Jane to take on this wonderful assignment for any client”. Colleen Lewis 9th December 2016
I recently completed a portrait drawing of Annie who crossed the Rainbow Bridge just before Christmas and I delivered it personally to David and Margo last Thursday. I am so pleased that they loved the drawing and was delighted that I had included the Edgar’s Mission bandana that Annie wore so often to greyhound events.
Ollie’s portrait, a drawing using graphite and watercolour pencil is finished. Ollie’s portrait features one of my drawings as a reproduction print. Ollie decided to get the print and modify Ollie style with a few selected chews! I drew the print, as a brilliant idea from Kerryn, as a representation of Ollie’s cheeky fun loving nature.
Three very special Italian Greyhounds; Giacomo, Bella and Pia. When I undertook drawing their portraits I wanted to make each of them distinct in personality and character and also in keeping with their petite size, so I used soft watercolour washes to emphasise their differing colours. Once the watercolour was dry I continued with soft graduated graphite strokes and blending technique to build up the contrast of tone and sense of the three lying and sitting in (not on!) the soft fabric.
Thank you Annie for inviting me to view Jacob’s portrait that I recently painted and now beautifully framed by Terry at Mooroolbark Picture Framers. Thank you for your warm hospitality yesterday and always love visiting Jacob too
