pinterest-157bc(2)  Portraits Hand Drawn in Pastel

 It is know that there is no better way to celebrate and show your love, than by having a nice framed portrait of your favorite person up on the wall for you and all to see!


It’s very important to have a good photo for me to work from. The image must show a character, and not necessarily through a smile. Also, the photo where you are looking directly into a camera is not always the best option. Expressive eyes, particular body position, dress are very important in making a portrait. The photo must be in focus an not too small, actually larger photo is better. The background doesn’t matter much. Upon purchase please feel free to send me by e/m (grudinita@gmail.com) options if you are not sure which image would be best for painting. I’d be happy to help you pick out the best photo to turn into portrait The high resolution is best for portrait! You may choose the size and color of paper. I can also make your portrait in oil on canvas of arbitrary size.
