PORTRAITS ON PAPER

Paper portraits can be done in pencil, charcoal or soft pastel.

The pencil and/or charcoal portraits are made in black and white, with possible small color inserts, on professional drawing paper with a high percentage of cotton. The paper can be white, grey or cream-colored, depending on the shade of the starting photo and the effect you want to create.

This technique is available in sketch portrait, realistic, or hyper-realistic styles.

Soft pastel portraits can instead be made both in black and white and in color, on specific drawing paper, which can be white, anthracite or colored.

This technique is only available in hyper-realistic style.

The portraits can be shipped worldwide by express courier, and the packaging is done with care. You can follow the work in progress of the portrait and see the result before it is sent. You also have the right to request any changes.

SOFT PASTELS

The soft pastel technique on paper is particularly suitable for creating portraits with bright tones and soft lines, therefore perfect for reproducing photos of children and animals (both pets and exotic animals). With this technique it is also possible to choose colored paper supports, based on the tone of the reference photo. The pastel portrait is only available in the hyper-realistic style.

The minimum size to be able to create a pastel portrait is the 30x40cm format.
