8x11 inches

Coloured pencils, watercolour pencils and pan Pastels on wood

This is a portrait of our third son Ben, although the reference photo was taken quite a few years ago, as he is now 15. He was such a placid, easy baby and toddler (perfect for a third child) - he's still beautiful, but is a teenager now, so what more can I say!!! Anyway, his school is holding a portrait exhibition and they are asking students, family and friends to enter portraits of a loved one, so I thought who better than him. I am thinking of offering commissioned portraits on wood, and might even try a combination of graphite and pan pastels for commissions. The beauty of them being done on the wood is that there is no need to worry about framing, as the D Rings can be screwed straight into the back.

This is a wonderful portrait of your son Karen, sure to be treasured in the school exhibit, and by Ben and your family. I hope more commissions will emerge from this beautiful example.
