A pencil drawn portrait makes a unique and wonderful gift. The portrait will be completed on 200gsm acid free cartridge paper which is a substantial weight and is off white in colour. This style of portrait allows for fine details whilst still ensuring a softness essential for child portraits.
Working from your favourite photograph, I capture your loved one as you know them best. I can do portraits of babies, children, adults or pets. A hand drawn portrait takes approximately 2 weeks to produce and be ready for delivery.
Once you have placed your order, I will contact you to request a copy of your chosen photograph. Please ensure that you own the rights of use of the photograph. Please make sure you select a photograph that is clear and shows the subjects features well and that captures the character that you would like to see in your portrait.
