Commissioned Portraits

Drawing portraits is difficult and demanding. The purchaser usually knows the subject intimately an is therefore extremely critical of the finished work. It either looks like him/her or it doesn’t!

Peter likes to work from his own photographs so that he understands the face from many angles but, just as important, he understands the character of the subject so that he can reveal it in the drawing.

The works below are shown as examples and are not for sale except “Bad Hair Day” which was not commissioned.

Portraits are normally 11” x 9” pencil drawings on 100lb Bristol paper. For this size Peter charges a standard $295.00 plus Sales Tax (where applicable) and plus packing and delivery where required. Framing is available for an extra charge.
