In the Beginning - Other examples

Some other examples of my commissioned work.

(Again...please note that the scan quality of these sketches is awful and a lot of the fine detail is missing. I love technology...sigh).

Portrait Study of my brother Michael

(A3 - 11.5" x 16.5")

This portrait (my second) was commissioned for my brother's 50th birthday after my sister-in-law saw the one I had done for our sister (see below). It was done as a sort of mini depiction of his life so far. Happy Birthday Michael!

Steves Mother and Father

Steves Father

(A4 - 8" x 11.5")

These two portraits were early works. They were both done as a single commission. The photos I was given were small and became very grainy when they were enlarged. It was quite difficult to make out quite a lot of the detail but with the help of my trusty magnifier, I was able to get it done with good results. The man in both portraits are one and the same, but at different ages.

(A3 - 11.5" x 16.5")

My sister Barbera

(A3 - 11.5" x 16.5")

This was the very first portrait I ever did. It was done as a surprise for my sister Barb (before I even thought of ever doing another one) on her 40th birthday and the one that started off this whole venture. She cried with joy when she saw it, then I cried, then we laughed, then she cried again. Hey, it was an emotional and happy time. :)

Aussie Visit

(A3 - 11.5" x 16.5")

This sketch was done as a reminder of a fabulous trip Down-Under by my 'in-laws' from the UK. Four separate photos were used for this one and melded together into one big happy family portrait. Oh, and a great time was had by all! :)
