A selection of some past Portrait commissions in Oil, Pencil or Color Pencils mainly. The top banner shows a few vignettes from the Drake commission I completed in 2014. To inquire about or commission your own Portrait, contact me here [email protected]
The Shand Girls - Oil on Canvas 18" x 14"
The Happy Couple - Oil - 14" x 18"
This Portrait was commissioned by friends to celebrate this happy pair's engagement.
Windswept - Graphite and Pencil 12" x 16"
Young Girl - Colour pencils 12" x 16"
This drawing is of my daughter and was originally begun as a demonstration of freehand drawing for one of my Art Groups.
This drawing was done from a photo as an ongoing demonstration of colour pencil techniques to an Art class. I love the subtlety and depth that can be built up with correct use of this medium. It especially suits child portraits I think.
This portrait was commissioned by their mother as these lovely sisters were leaving home and she wanted to have a sense of their still being around.
Nerayanii - Oil on Canvas 28" x 38"
This near life - size painting of the beautiful Nerayanii was done from both live sittings in the client's home and studio shots. It was commissioned by her parents to celebrate her upcoming wedding.
Jack and Henry - Colour Pencil 12" x 16"
This was commissioned as a companion piece to one of Jack's brother, commissioned earlier as a Birthday gift for his father. We had a lovely photo shoot and both Jack and Henry were very patient about it all!
