This commission is a Christmas present for a couple I don’t know which tends to make it harder to put ‘character’ into a portrait. Working from a photo, I’m hoping I’ve managed to get something they’ll be happy with.

wow Brian this is great
This is truly unbelieveable! The tones are perfect, as are the features, and I love the way the light is bouncing off the hair and the skin. Her eyes are stunning! I am in awe! You are beyond talented! I would be ecstatic if this were for me! Truly ,truly just beautiful! This is what is so great about this site. The oppportunity to see work like this makes it worth it alone.
awesome work well done
What a glorious present Brian, you preserve a lost tradition in art with your portraits, its wonderful, truly, as much as I love photography, a drawn portrait holds an energy which comes from the body and it makes a unique connection….more power to you….
omg its so perfect! i love this :D
This is a real gem. Your portraiture has wings Brian!
Oh Brian this is lovely. xxx Pat
Lovely pastel work, particularly impressive considering your working from a photo of people you don’t know and have still managed to capture the connection and emotion between the figures so well…
