Portraits - pastel, colored pencils, graphite
As a portraitist, Flavie Leh offers you the realization of human or animal portraits.
Different formats and techniques are possible, ranging from small intimate portraits to imposing paintings. The composition can also vary, from a simple portrait of a person to the full-length representation of a group.
Animals are not forgotten, a portrait of a pet is a precious memory that you never tire of.
Different renderings are possible: black and white with graphite pencil or color with colored pencils or pastels... but it is also possible to mix techniques using graphite and colored pencils, and even, for a rendering original and precious, add gold leaf (see in the gallery below the graphite and gold leaf portrait on wood for example).
Procedure for ordering a human or animal portrait:
For the realization of the portraits, it is important, as far as possible, to provide quality photos (of good resolution, where one can clearly see details by enlarging the image) which allows the portrait artist to capture the likeness and personality of the subject represented.
However, it is not always possible to have good photos (old photos for example). In this case, the artist, without being able to work miracles, will adapt to the images that you can provide.
Do not hesitate to provide several photos of the person or animal to represent, Flavie Leh will be able to select with you the one that seems most appropriate to the project.
It is also possible to group several people or animals on the same drawing by using several reference photos.
