Children Portraits in Graphite Pencil by Katja Turnsek

Portrait Commission Info

This is pencil drawing of two children on deck which I drew on Fabriano Artistico. Haidar contacted me to create a pencil drawing for his sister Hiba's birthday. When they were children, both of them used to travel with their father to the sea since he was a sailor.

His sister used to take a good care of him, even though she was only a few years older than him. Haidar wanted to give his sister something symbolic from a very nice period of their lives they spent together.

Children's Portrait in Progress

Below you can view a few work in progress photos of this portrait. It is important for me that you understand the painting process at the same as you have a full input the entire time, that is why I’m prepared to spend some extra time in order to keep you regularly updated. I have had this feature for many years, even though I uploaded the progress images to a static html page at first. Now I use my portraits in blog for this exciting feature. If you do not wish to share your painting’s progress or the completed painting with the world, I can send you the progress images by email. Several clients decided to do this, especially famous ones.
