Who does not appreciate the beauty of having a portrait of art of their loved ones or their beloved pets. The ability to transform a beautiful photograph and giving it life with just purely colored pencils is something that could stay with you forever. Things may come and go through our lives, but the beauty of art will always be there. Art is beauty and is a value that can be appreciated forever. Just thing about having an amazing portrait of someone special in your life; weather is your spouse, family, child or pet in your living room. It will always be there. I have completed many drawings of loved ones over the years and leave them with a smile. If you have any questions contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This one is called Motherhood. I just completed this one a few days ago. (more…)
Sometimes in life I just get inspire by a recent major event. Events affect our lives; the way we think, the way we feel and the way we express ourselves. Its sad when you read about someone passing away; but what makes it more difficult is when is an innocent child that was barely 3 years old.
Caylee was a beautiful little girl and she is now an inspiration in the world of art. I just began this drawing about 3 hours ago; but this time I decided to work on it without any grids and just use the computer screen as the main pose. This is one of the smallest portraits I am working on as it measures 11 by 17. Quite a big difference from my usual 16 by 20, 18 by 24, 24 by 30. I am not quite sure how long it will take to the completed product; but I will be working on it for the next few hours. Stay tuned for next steps to heaven as well as the final piece.
Last minute inspirations in the world of art can bring such strong emotions.

My inspiration came during the famous Chicago Blizzard of February 2nd. I remember enjoying the moments as the blizzard came down upon us. The more the snow fell the more incentive I had to keep creating.
Motivation came from the beauty of the black and white photography I was admiring while homebound. While the light and shadows had amazing depth, I felt I wanted to add something more. I thought how simply amazing what a touch of color could bring to the images.
Almost immediately, I was drawn to an image of my nephew. I decided to try the technique of adding color to black and white by highlighting his gorgeous eyes. I was extremely pleased with the results.
The aptly titled “Behind Blue Eyes” brings the viewer’s attention to one of the most stunning aspects of my nephew. The blue in stark contrast to the black and white was just the touch the seemed to complete the drawing.
Leave a comment bellow and let us know about what you think of the technique!
