Graphite Pencil Portrait Commission
Mom's 80th Birthday

Graphite Portrait Commission for Birthday Gift

This is the rough sketch for a graphite pencil portrait commission that I am working on for my client's mother's 80th birthday gift.


I have drawn out the rough sketch on plain cartridge paper and will now transfer it onto my fine art paper. I worked out a lot more detail than I usually do at this point. I think mainly just because I miss drawing as I have been painting so much lately!

Now to cut the paper and transfer the image and jump into the fun part, the building up the depth! The final portrait will be 16x20" framed with a double white matt.
