All About Pastel Portraits
There are more drawings to see after this interesting information!
Sizes and Backgrounds
My conté pastel portrait drawings are all custom and hand drawn on high quality paper in any size, always delivered with a white matt/mount. The size you order is actually the paper size, studies need some space between the paper edges and possible scenic backgrounds will be drawn from edge to edge.
Other dynamic and fancy background effects are spontaneously drawn around areas of your pet and to some edges in order to create interest and depth.
On top of the ordered size, I always leave an additional edge to attach the matt. Making sure everything is perfect for you, I will also spend allot of time creating photo compositions and mockup’s based on your wishes before I start to draw.
Once we settled on the mockup, I will start creating a special one of a kind portrait for you.
The Style of My Drawings
My pastels are drawings, created like sketches with allot of paper showing though. As you see in my gallery, some portraits are tinted with color and others are drawn with only back and white.
The portraits are usually created with very limited colors, that helps me create drama in my work. Backgrounds are usually drawn soft, which brings out the subject.
So, which paper color should you choose?
Depending on your reference photographs, coloring of your pet and your personal wishes, you can choose between three different paper colors. White paper is neutral, grey creates a cool entirety and creme-yellow achieves allot of warmth to the overall feel.
How I will draw your custom portrait all depends on your personal wishes and also on the overall feel both of us would like to achieve. With our initial contact, let me know what I can do for you!
