Oscar · Age 14 · Wicklow
Hello! My name is Oscar. I am 14 years old and from Wicklow. I drew this portrait of Charlie, the much loved pet and companion of my mammy’s friend Sinead. Charlie sadly died last year and Sinead challenged me to capture Charlie’s playful spirit to remind her of the extraordinary bond they had together.
I used coloured pencils on A3 Vellum using white marker for the glint in his eyes. Using coloured pencils helps me give movement and depth to Charlie.
I have been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil. I love drawing because I love how it makes people feel and it takes me to a happy place.
