The Portrait Project

Over two days in 2022, I set out a table and asked people to stop by so I could interview them for a portrait. Here are some of the resulting drawings.

Photos of My Beautiful People

As part of my process in developing an oil portrait, I schedule a session where I take high-quality photos. These become reference material for my paintings, and I typically provide digital copies as part of the engagement.

My Beautiful People in Pen and Ink

Drawing portraits in pen and ink is a challenge, but when it works, it's so satisfying. A few lines are used to communicate much.
