The Graphite Pencil Portrait – Classical, yet Modern
The Graphite Pencil Portrait goes beyond timeless; from before the colored
photograph, the black and white pictures were and are still popular. Now you can
have your favorite photograph hand drawn as a pencil portrait. The pencil
portrait is shaded to capture features, expressions, personalities and light.
I am a pencil artist who lives in Littleton Colorado. I specialize in pencil
portraits of people and pets, drawn by hand using graphite pencils and charcoal.
I draw pencil portraits from reference photographs of the people and pets you love.
A pencil portrait is more than a sketch but a piece of art that you will
proudly hang on your wall. Pencil portraits are the perfect wedding, shower,
graduation, anniversary, Christmas and birthday gifts. Pencil portraits are
more than a gift for one occasion because they become heirlooms that last
throughout the years. They make wonderful personalized gifts to friends or
loved ones. Why not present someone you love with a timeless graphite pencil
portrait as a unique gift for your next gift giving occasion. Or start a family
tradition of pencil portraits to preserve your ancestry through the generations.
My hope is that I will have the opportunity to bless you with a graphite
pencil portrait of someone you love.
This drawing is a wedding gift for Justin and Kelsey. A lovely young couple. It is a sweet image that was a delight to draw. It is on a 5"X7" Bienfang Bristol Board.
