My first commissioned portrait!
A friend of mine wanted to give his wife a unique gift, so he asked me to complete a charcoal portrait of her. Her picture had been used on the cover of a local magazine, so in this instance I completed the entire portrait using a photo-reference. Normally, I would prefer to work with a 'live' model, but since this was to be a surprise, that was not possible. I'm told that she was truly surprised by this gift, and that the family loves it.....aren't friends wonderful!?
