Welcome...

I am a Pencil Artist and Drawing Tutor based in Hampshire, UK.

 

They say “A picture speaks a thousand words” and I couldnt agree more. I dedicate my time to capturing your memories in the form of pencils; creating a one-of-a-kind custom ‘picture’ for you to display with pride.

 

Using professional grade materials, I am able to hand-draw finely detailed, traditional styled portraits of your pet, family member, or special memory. I also offer a tutoring service!

Welcome…

I am pencil artist & tutor living in Hampshire, UK. I specialise in pencil portraits of Animals & houses. Working from your photographs – I strive to translate the character of the subject onto paper – providing you with a custom portrait to display with pride.

About me…

My name is Lucy Colegate and I’ve been selling my portraits for 7 years.  Art, especially drawing, has always been a massive passion of mine. Since 2012, I have practiced drawing almost everyday. 

Watching my skills improve was my biggest motivator – I’m in awe of the creation process and trying to replicate an image on paper using pencils.

I also offer one to one tutoring lessons, there’s nothing I love more than passing my skills down to other aspiring artists, and still being able to produce my own commissioned work alongside.

What people have to say…

Just want to say a massive thank you to Lucy who has drawn this picture of our lovely dog Ruby who we sadly lost a few weeks ago!!! I can’t believe this is a drawing it’s so realistic! Thank you again!!

Lucy captured my puppy Bertie perfectly – so talented and I will now always have my puppy on view x

Cheryl

The drawing you did of Kite was absolutely amazing. I can’t stop looking at it as the drawing is an exact copy of her. You are such an amazing artist I will definately ask for another commission after Christmas. Thank you. x

All my work is drawn in a traditional style. This includes central composition & on a white background. Please state otherwise if you’d like a different coloured background or a different composition!

Tutoring

Firstly I’d ask to see some artwork & what interests the individual.  This will give me a rough understanding of the ability and allow me to plan a first lesson.  I endeavour to keep the lessons engaging & fun; using reference photos that are of an interest to the student.  I work side by side with my students giving verbal & visible demonstrations throughout the drawing process.  I have a studio to work in with a large desk area & I supply all of the materials needed throughout a lesson.

My aim is to build my students confidence & help them realise their potential and what they can achieve in a short space of time with practise & commitment!
