Portraits by

Portraits by Tosh are created using photographs supplied by the customer then transformed into a work of art.
Portraits can be of children, adults, family groups, pets, wild animals and caricatures, I also draw landscapes, vehicles and buildings. Basically any photograph can be used as a starting point.

I love to watch the expressions on customers faces when they see the finished artwork for the first time. It can produce a tear or two when the subject means a lot or a memory is captured in ‘The Portrait’.
I work purely in colour pencil or graphite. The portraits are mainly A3 in size for a single or double heads. Multiple head portraits can also be completed to a larger size.

Testimonials




Absolutely thrilled with the portrait of beautiful ‘Totti’ (dog of a lifetime). Now joins my handsome ‘Dancer’ (horse of a lifetime). Thanks you so much Alan McIntosh for both commissions. Highly recommended!

I commissioned a drawing of a collie as a gift for a friend. The service was amazing, and when the drawing, which came nicely mounted and framed, was presented, she was overcome ! Tears even, not just the likeness, the personality of the dog was portrayed in the drawing !! This is the best pet portrait artist around ! A very talented man !....

Alan has drawn 2 pictures of my daughter for us. He has made a brilliant job. It is like looking at a photograph. He works on the drawing until it is perfect. We also commissioned a portrait of my mother in laws boxer dog who had passed away. She was over the moon with it and we couldn't believe the likeness of all 3 pictures. I would not go to anyone else for a portrait as I know that he will work on it until it is exactly as it should be - Amazing!

If more than one image can be supplied this would be helpful for the completion of the finished drawing.
The more detail on the supplied image(s) the better the portrait. A simple guide would be for the photograph to have eyelash detail visible. There will be circumstance where this is not possible but where you can please try!
Caricature require a good photograph of the subject and lots of additional information - hobbies, likes, dislikes etc. - anything which can be added to complete the finished item.
