COLOUR PASTELS  PORTRAIT

Pastel portraits are the least well known and pastels look like  chalk sticks and are applied to the paper surface like chalks and are sprayed with a fixative to keep from smudging.

These pastel portraits have a velvety texture and look to them and are favoured by many artists for portraits as the pastels can be blended to many subtle shades.

pastel portraits are drawn from your special photos to give a wonderful likeness and will make a fabulous gift for a friend.

See sample portraits on the pastel portraits gallery page.

Portraits are on heavy pastel paper and come with a free backing board and card surround mount ready for framing your  pastel drawing.You need a good clear photo to show details to be copied to your pastel  portrait.

 

PENCIL  PORTRAIT DRAWING

 by the portrait artist David Gilchrist from your special  photographs.

Each pencil portrait is expertly drawn onto heavy grade art paper in a realistic portrait style taking many hours to achieve wonderful results that can be seen in both pet and people portraits from this busy artist.

Conte drawing pencils are used on the bigger  portraits giving rich dark shadows and good contrast while the smaller drawings benefit from graphite pencils that give fine detailed results you will love.

Each pencil portrait in my normal sizes has a free card surround mount and a backing board is supplied as standard ready to frame. A good clear photograph is required for a superior result .

Email me your photo and i`ll let you know if it is suitable, and ask for your free quote.
