Pastel Portraits Gallery

welcome to my pastel portraits page

i can  create professional  portraits of people and pets for you using this wonderful medium that gives subtle blends and shading idealy suited to portrait work.

pastel portraits are created using coloured pastel sticks  like chalk onto premium pastel paper or board  by a pastel portrait artist with many years experience working from clients photographs  of people or pets

I have 2 popular sizes that I work to  12 by 16 inches and 20 by 16 inches

that will give a good result from the pastel chalks.

please remember that pastels are fragile and need to be framed under glass for extra protection but once framed should last a lifetime.

i also create oil painting portraits on canvas and b&w pencil portraits

why not check these out too !
