The drawings below are series. Consisting of four drawings of A4 format and A5 format. Sold per series and also separately. Contact me for the dimensions and prices without obligation.



The prices below are for one animal. For each additional animal I charge an extra of 25%. I make portraits with polychromos colored pencils from the Faber-Castell brand. High-quality pigments with excellent color strength and light resistance. I draw most of the time on tinted paper such as grays, light brown, brown gray. In consultation possible to choose a color that I have in stock at that moment. Drawing with colored pencil is a labor-intensive process. Through different layers I finally come to a final result. For example, for a drawing of 20 by 20 cm, I need an average of seven hours of drawing time.


The prices below are in euros, including materials. Exclusive frames. The prices are based on one animal without background. 


20 x 20 cm:  € 125

21 x 30 cm (A4 formaat): € 150
