We have experience in drawing and painting both live and in-studio portraits in different techniques using different media. We draw realistic looking portraits and use our experience and skills to create a piece of artwork that will express your love, care and the best memories of your life and the life of your beloved people!

 

We usually use one or several photos as reference for a portrait. Sometimes the artist combines a few pictures to find the best position, face expression or lighting. Picture below(Pastel portrait of a wedding couple) - artist combined photo shown for a groom's face and another one to show a bride with the more flattering lighting.

We paint color portraits using pastels and for black and white portraits we use charcoal or graphite. These media are traditionally chosen by artists to reach a great likeness and add artistic value to the portraits.
