COLOUR PASTELS

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.

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

See sample portraits in the pastel portraits gallery 

Portraits are on heavy paper and come with a free backing board and card surround mount ready for framing your colour drawing.

You need a good clear picture to show details to be copied to your portrait.
