Pencil Drawings & Fine Prints

Commissions

These drawings are not 'artist's impressions'. They are faithful copies of your reference. They take time to study and draw and are not cheap. However, they are good value and that value will increase as the years roll by.

In money terms? Maybe, maybe not. But in sentimental and historical terms to you and those that will follow on, immeasurable. At this time, when genealogy is all the rage, I really do believe it.

Turn that favourite but fast fading photograph into an impressive hand drawn portrait.

Drawn on 100% cotton based, heavyweight paper with very careful attention to likeness and mechanical detail then mounted in museum quality materials, it will be a lasting piece of family history for future generations to admire. More than can be said for your 'unhappy snap'! It would also make a perfect present for that person who "has everything" or is just plain difficult.

Graphite, being an inert substance, will last considerably longer than any carefully hand processed black & white photo print, never mind any inkjet or laser based photo prints, and certainly create more interest.
