Charcoal Portraits: Commission Now For the Holidays

If you’re anything like me, your phone is filled photos.  I love capturing exciting events and intimate moments, and I smile when I look at these pictures.  But I rarely print any of my photos.  I’m changing all that by building a collection of portraits of the people I love, drawn from photos taken at special moments.  

My charcoal drawings highlight the person and eliminate the excess noise from the original picture.  Unlike professional photography, these drawings are tied to specific memories that are cherished and loved.

I use vine and willow charcoal sticks as well as black and white charcoal pencil on toned Strathmore 400 series paper.  Finished walnut frame with acid-free white mat and UV non-glare plexiglass with wire hanger attached available, so the portrait could arrive ready-to-hang.  (Frames through Brooklyn-based framer Art To Frame.)
