Telling a story

 

What I love about creating portraits is the reaction from the client when the final piece is delivered.  I spend countless hours telling a story on paper and getting to know the subject.  My own satisfaction with the work is rewarding but I know I have been truly successful if there are tears of joy.

Working out the details

 

I almost always do studies and sketches to work out the details and get to know the subject before embarking on a final piece.  These are photos of scratch paper or sketchbook pages from the studio.
