Live sittings are preferred and can be arranged with times to suit. I would advise an hour sitting during which I will photograph the pose and continue the drawing in my own time.
I am also happy to complete drawings from photographs. In this case a 3/4 angled face is the classic portrait pose, it is attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Avoid smiles that show teeth, they don't make a great image. A portrait should reflect the sitters normal relaxed pose.
Currently my portraits are drawn in charcoal on Toned Grey mixed media paper 11 x 14" or A3 pearl grey pastel paper. They are unframed, shipped flat in an all board envelope.
They are £120
