Graphite Art

DrawingHeaderGraphite Portraits and Art is a very special media that I am very passionate about.  It is the essence of all art forms and represents the subject in a very special way.  I have been creating graphite portraits for sometime and have a great number of very satisfied clients.  My graphite portraits are created in a way to last for generations.  All work is created on acid free gallery quality archived illustration board.  This very special media allows me to get the widest amount of values in tones while giving a rich and smooth surface for blending.

The current cost for a commissioned 11×14 portrait is $250.00 for the first subject and $50.00 for each additional subject in the same work of art.  I further highly recommend my graphite portrait custom framing service to properly and professionally protect the art from undesirable elements.  Each framed work is sealed in a fine art black wood frame with double matting and glass.  The art is then further protected with a hard backing and sealed with a dust cover.  The art is ready to hang and protected for generations of enjoyment.

I always try to explain to my clients that I draw what I see and the quality of the reference photo determines the quality of the final art work.  At times I understand that the photo you have may be the only photo available of the subject.  In these cases I need to review the photo to determine if there is sufficient detail to create the art from.  But if at all possible I recommend my portrait session to create a perfect reference for the art work.  Please contact me for a package price and to schedule a portrait session.

All art work requires a $100.00 deposit at the time of booking the commissioned project.  The balance is due on completion of the work.  I accept all major credit cards, checks or cash.
