Custom painted pastel portrait from photographs. I am a portrait artist out of Greenville, NC and I have been drawing and painting for 20 years. I sold my first portrait at age 16 and went on to study art at UNCW. I work in oil, pastel and watercolor. This listing is for a pastel portrait. Pastels are superior quality chalk drawn on French paper, and are fantastic for childrens portraits. Because they are so delicate, it is mandatory that the portrait is professionally matted and framed once you recieve it. You must have good quality reference photographs, although minor changes can be made (such as the color of the shirt). The portrait is size 16x20 and includes head and shoulders is $250 and $200 for each additional child in the portrait. Portraits with 2 or more children will be size 18x24. I will email you photos of the finished portrait before I mail it to make sure you are happy with it. This is an heirloom that will be passed down from generation to generation. Turn around time is 2-3 weeks.
