Unique Pencil Portraits, hand drawn from your favourite photos by a UK based artist.

Capture that special moment with a unique original hand drawn pencil portrait of your family, friends, pets and loved ones. I always pay close attention to details in your photograph to capture as much of their personality as possible. 


I always use quality materials for your drawings. For people I use graphite pencils (black and white) and for pet portraits or other animals I use either graphite or colour pencils, whichever you prefer.

I work alongside you every step of the way to ensure the best quality drawing. 

Please remember that the better the quality of the photo, the better the drawing will be. However I fully understand that some portraits will be memorials or even just have that special memory for you so I will consider drawing from any photograph that you have available.

Personal, original drawings keep unique memories and make perfect gifts.

We have a new home!!

Commission a drawing

How does this work?​

It’s easy, to commission a drawing just follow these simple steps:

  • Take a look and decide on a size that you would like, then email me a copy of your favourite photograph (enquiries@gwatkinfineart.co.uk). Please look through my gallery for examples of my work and check out my 'materials, sizes and prices' page to help you decide on how you would like your drawing.

  • By all means send me as many additional photos as you like, the more I see the more detail and personality comes through. You can also contact me through the form on my Contact me page.

  • Let me know if there is particular date that you would need your drawing, such as for a family event or birthday.

  • I take a look and together with my helper Marley (pictured here 'helping' me!) we can agree on your drawing and I can let you know an estimated finish date.

  • You then send a small non-refundable deposit and I start working on your drawing.

  • When finished I'll send you a sample image for your perusal.

  • When you are completely happy with your drawing you send the balance.

  • I'll then post you your completed original hand drawn artwork.

If you are unsure of anything please contact me, I am happy to help you from start to finish. Whether its help to choose a photo or picking the best size for the subject  I'm always here.
