Another favorite of mine is the human face. You can see more at my website
www.cathyannstudio113.com/ portraits There is a price list there for oil paintings.
But here, you see an example of my work in pencil of a child's head.
I prefer to take my own photos of children, but if you an exceptional shot, can email it to me at 300dpi jpeg, we can discuss it and then proceed from there.
Graphite Pencil drawings like this are a disciplined drawing and not a sketch. It takes skill, lots of study and a long time to do.
Frequently people ask how long does it take to do this?
In actual hours, anywhere from 10 to 16 or more.
But it took a lifetime of continued study of the human face, schooling and daily practice develop the skills.
This drawing is approximately 10x12 on a larger piece of paper. All quality materials.
I had the pleasure of delivering this portrait commission to the mom of the little boy. She was thrilled with it. But the ultimate compliment came when she held up the image and asked her son" Who is this?" and he gleefully responded " That's Parker!"
I love satisfied clients.
