Photographs

I can work from your own photograph or I can take the photograph for you in a short photo-shoot in your own environment, where you'll feel most relaxed.

In order to create the most realistic portrait, a good quality photograph is needed. High resolution digital images are best but I can also work with traditional photos as long as they are clear.

Many of my works are of beloved pets that have sadly passed away, so do not despair if you don't have any 'great' pictures. I can work from several 'not quite as good' shots as long as I can get a distinct view of all the main facial features, especially the eyes.

 If commissioning for a multi-subject portrait, I am able to work from separate images of the subjects and compose them into one portrait.

 

- Next step: Once the details are sorted,  (like size, background detail and completion date) I'll get started. Graphite Portrait Sketches take about three weeks to complete. I can keep you updated throughout and let you know how your portrait is progressing.
