Item details



Charcoal, White Charcoal, Strathmore 400 Series


Height: 12 Inches; Width: 9 Inches

I will draw a loose, artistic portrait based on an image you provide. Portraits are drawn with black and white charcoal on toned Strathmore 400 paper serving as a mid-tone. Portraits are all on 9" x 12" paper as on the examples, and fit easily into standard frames. Each portrait is unique and images are all simply examples of previous portraits I have drawn using similar methods and materials. This listing is for a single individual with a simple background. If you're looking for something more complex in a similar style, contact me about creating a custom listing!

Please Note:
*You must provide a reference photo to serve as the basis for the portrait. I may be able to make some minor adjustments, but the better quality lighting in the photo the better the result will be.
*All artworks are interpretations, so I cannot guarantee perfect likenesses.
*I may post images of your portrait either finished or in progress on social media or as an example here on Etsy to showcase my work. I will NEVER include any names or personal information without express consent.

    I love this piece. I purchased it to frame and hang in my office. For some reason, I find it deeply soothing and often find myself contemplating the intricate line work when I'm stressed. I get frequent compliments from visitors, and I'm always happy to direct them to this artist.
