pencil portraits

I love portraiture and to capture that life spark. I suffer chronic depression which is why I think I only wish to draw happiness. To me the gift of even momentary happiness is extremely worthwhile which is why I love to give these to the subject. I see the happiness this gift brings to others and I consider this is my personal gift to our world to make it a better place. I absolutely love doing them as well, bonus!

I always start with the eyes. I start and often go back to them changing by adding to and taking away tone often. That is the beauty of working in pencil you always have that opportunity to improve and change your work.
