As as an artist painting portraits, I always endeavor to achieve a good likeness. Here you will find a variety of completed portraits of dogs, cats, people and horses. These are achieved using either pastels or charcoal, although I have recently completed my first portrait commission in oils (see below including the customers review).
“I first found Chris online and from our first communication I was confident that he would be able to successfully commission my husbands portrait.
Chris has worked tirelessly to complete the portrait ahead of time , working within a limited time constraint. To say I am extremely pleased with the outcome would be an understatement.
The portrait is a carbon copy of the photo provided, showing excellent skillmanship. Chris is very professional and very pleasant to work with, nothing is too much trouble.
I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking for that extra touch and A plus service.”

Painting portraits using pastels is a slightly different process to using other mediums. It tends to be a build up of tones starting with the darkest first, and to achieve the correct colour and balance, colours are layered and mixed on the paper.
