Portraits capture the essence of a beloved child or pet in a way that a photo cannot.  Graphite is a wonderfully nuanced medium, from the pale strokes of the 4H pencil all the way to the dark mark of an 8B and all the scales of gray in between. Each pencil stroke is laid down with care and attention to detail to build the image of the subject.

A portrait is one of the most thoughtful gifts you could ever give to someone, because it is unique and will undoubtedly become a precious memory. All that is needed to start is a few clear photographs, a blank page and a sharp pencil!
