Pencil Portraits

For  more portrait drawings and my pencil portrait price list, please scroll down.

I use the portrait below in my drawing workshops to teach dark backgrounds, gray beards and hair. This wonderful model goes by the name of "Hook". 

This portrait is of a close friend of mine and former student who passed away in 2013

Joe Hicks

I do many portraits of kids. The one below is a combination of 6 different portraits I had previously done. I chose different features of each one to create a new person. Since she doesn't really exist, I call this one

"The Perfect Baby"

Several years ago, I was commissioned to render 28 portraits for the Professional Golfers Association. The Colorado chapter of the PGA opened a new historical area and I produce portraits of members that were inducted into the PGA Hall of Fame. Here is a sample of some of the portraits.

Portrait Base Prices:

Portraits begin at $1,500.00 for a 14" x 18" head shot (hands not included). Each additional person included in the portrait adds $700.00 to that price. I can work from photos that you supply. A 25% deposit is required and the balance is due once you approve of the final portrait. Please email me at  [email protected] with any questions you may have.
