pencil portrait married couple christmas
This couple didn't have any photographs of them together from their courtship days in college. There was a wallet-sized picture of the husband and a 5"x7" photo of the wife, and I combined their images to make a 14"x17" pencil portrait in which they appear to have been pictured together all along! This pencil portrait made a lovely Christmas gift.

This portrait  was drawn from a very old and partly damaged photograph, and is a good example of how custom portraiture can be used as a form of restoration. My artwork isn't intended to be just a copy of a picture. The intense shadows and darks of the reference photograph were toned down, the client has a larger image of her loved one and has also gained an investment in original art that will be appreciated by her family for years to come.
