Pencil Portraits

Here are some black and white pencil, and pencil crayon coloured portraits I have completed both recently and around ten years ago.  Where available, I have included the date I completed them.  The coloured ones were done from photographs and the black and white pencil drawings were done from life.
I am available to draw portraits at your event !  I draw black pencil line drawings in 15 minutes each of subjects sitting still for that period of time.  I have done this twice at church bazaars and it was very successful. 
Don't worry - I do NOT do caricatures !!

Self Portraits



 8-1/2" x 11"

1993 Self Portrait

This Self Portrait, to the right, was completed in either 40 or 20 minutes, and the Drawing Instructor included it in her teacher's portfolio.  I drew this while looking in a mirror, and I did not want to move my head as I glanced at the mirror, and instead kept my face toward the drawing. This created the view with my eyes looking through my eyebrows, and created the moodiness. It was selected for the Touched By Fire Art Show and Sale this past November 15th, 2012, and was displayed as Not For Sale, since it is the first work in my personal portfolio.
18" x 24"





Pencil Portraits from Life

These are pencil line drawings done from life, a sitting subject ( person ).  They are of people drawing as I draw them, so they are challenging as the subject keeps moving.  All these black and white drawings took less than 15 minutes each.
I do not have any images of subjects sitting still, as I have given all those drawings to the subject or person sitting for the portrait.
