Fun in the Wee Hours of the Night…

Experimenting

with a favorite image

“Tulipa III”

 

Tulipa III Moderne

The original image is the Tulipa III charcoal pencil drawing, part of The Tulipa Series, and a particularly favorite image.  In this case, the image is digitally manipulated resulting in an 11 x 8.5 inch digital print on 80# Hammermill matte cover that is available for purchase at $18.

Drawing Pencil Portraits

Have you ever wondered whether artists really look like their self-portraits or not?

Do you think Henri Rousseau really looked like this painting?

Henri Rousseau

Or Pablo Picasso

Or Kathe Kollwitz

Often the self-portrait is an excellent likeness of the artist, but on other occasions the artist takes aesthetic license from pure emotion.

As an example of “not an exact likeness,” below is a photograph that I took of myself in the mirror, and the resulting self-portrait drawn in charcoal pencil from that photograph. Some of the pencil portraits that I have created are highly realistic and others are not–though all are representations of the individual and thoroughly enjoyable to create!

Self-Portrait PhotoSelf-Portrait - WHITEIn drawing a pencil portrait, I completely concentrate on the total likeness of the person that I’m drawing. Capturing the spirit of the person is very important to me and to whomever has commissioned me to draw the portrait.

Pencil Portraits of an individual are 11 x 14 inches, suitable for framing, and are $325.

If you are interested in having me create a Pencil Portrait for you of your ancestors or immediate family, please let me know.
