A portrait

I believe the eyes hold the key to a successful portrait of a child. Capturing the intensity of their gaze or their particular cheeky twinkle helps to draw you in. Drawn or painted portraits are often contemplative and offer a depth that is hard to recreate in a controlled photographic shoot. The simplicity of a pencil drawing helps portray the essence of a child. It strips away the background allowing the character of the child to shine through.

Portrait Commissions

If you would like me to sketch a portrait of your child then please email me your favourite photograph. I will ask for a small deposit and will email you a scan of the portrait to check that you are happy.
