THE FRAMED PORTRAIT
Due to the possibility of the glass in a portrait frame getting damaged in transit, and as glass is not insured, as a rule I do not offer framing for my pencil portraits if they are to be posted out to a destination, however from time to time if a customer is prepared to take the chance I am happy to do this. Sarah wanted a matching frame with plaque to match her two previous portraits. The framing was done by Brampton Picture Framing in my old birth town of Chesterfield and posted very securely out to Sarah upon completion. I think this is a superb finish to a very special portrait.
Here are other portraits that the commissionee asked me to produce for her. All have been completed in coloured pencils and Bruno (middle) was the first portrait that I completed of him which gave me good practice for this second portrait.
Please click on any of the images if you wish to find out more about the progress of these pieces and see how they came together too.
