Second of four portraits, Brody, is finished

This is Brody, as always completed in soft pastels and pastel pencils, and I am very pleased with how he has turned out. My wife Cath took the photographs and the children’s mother and I chose the best ones of each – you can see Brody with James below. I have just started the third son, Cosmo, and it has taken me about 60 hours to get the necessary detail on each brother so far. I will be posted a full “work in progress” in due course with more details of how I use pastels and pastel pencils.

The first of four portrait commissions, James, nearly finished

After completing a pastel portrait of her dog, Helen was very  keen for me to do portraits of her four children, also in pastel. My wife Cath took the photographs and Helen and I chose the best ones of each and this is the progress photo of James. I will be posted a full “work in progress” in due course with more details of how I use pastels and pastel pencils.
