I am available to create a commissioned drawing, using coloured pencil or pastel pencil. The choices for design, size, paper colour and with or without a drawn background will be discussed in advance by email or telephone.
When you commission a drawing, I will give you an estimate of when you can expect the portrait. If you need the drawing at a specific time, for example as a gift, the delivery time can be discussed. Keep in mind that on average 1 to 2 months are needed. During the drawing process, I will keep you informed of progress.
Please note that in order to make a good drawing, I can only work with good-quality photos. However, not any random photo can be used for this purpose due to Copyright issues. I can help find a suitable photo from free online stock photos, in some cases it is the best choice to buy a good photo from, for example, wildlifereferencephotos.com. Additional costs of this are for the client. If it is a portrait of a pet, I can give you tips on how to take the best possible photos. I reserve the right to reject what I deem unsuitable.
A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required to guarantee your reservation. The balance will have to be paid upon completion when you are satisfied with the result. Any shipping costs are the client's responsibility.
Workshops and courses
Registration is possible via my website or by sending an email. I will then let you know if there is still space.
