For answers to your questions about commissioning a portrait with me, I welcome you to visit "Commissions" and "Pricing", and review more examples of my portraiture at .
Lead time required for a portrait commission is commensurate with the detail and the technique being utilized. For any further questions please contact me at
A note that on occasion I post drawings from life, as well as drawings of nude models, as it is an important traditional practice which improves my ability in portraiture.

Dick Emerges

A detail of Dick, in progress.
                                                           Portrait of Kat and Dick in progress, with ground being laid for a basket of wood to the left of Dick on the fireplace.

My portrait of Kat and Dick is nearing completion, with some pinstripes and background details still to establish.  Looking at my progress on the computer is a big help sometimes, making it obvious what needs to be done next.  After taking an update photo, I subdued the light on Dick's head a bit more before making a scanned detail.

  2. Thanks Suzanne. Lots of pencil sharpening going on!
