Examples of recent portraits. I can create portraits with a variety of media – paint, pencil sketch, oil pastel.
If you can provide me with a decent reference photograph, I can draw any subject for you. It’s great if you can find a good photo with light and shade in it so there’s a dramatic effect in the drawing. Some shadow on one side of the face – and better still, if the face is turned slightly away from the camera (can still be looking towards the camera) – this tends to work really well in a sketch. You can find some handy tips on taking photos using digital cameras online. This article about taking decent shots is a fairly good starting point if you are looking for tips.
Contact me anytime to discuss a portrait you’d like and we will confirm dates and prices you’re happy with, before any work goes ahead.
