Most of the work I do- whether a mural, decorative finish or commissioned portrait tends to be done with paint – so it was fun to do this recent project in pencil!
I met my client John while on another job doing a specialty paint finish on some cabinets. When John learned that I did portraits, he instantly got the idea to have me create a gift for his wife.
John’s wife had a special relationship with her grandparents, but there unfortunately were not enough pictures of them for her to have one. Knowing this, and knowing that his wife loves pencil drawings – John asked me to do a pencil drawing of the grandparents as a special gift for his wife.
To make this happen, John was able to covertly get me a photo to work from. With this in hand, I was on to doing the drawing. Below is the photograph I worked from:
John was thrilled when I delivered the drawing (below), and is excited to give it to his wife!
