Vintage Family Portrait Commission!


Have you ever wondered what happens when an artist is asked to do a drawing or painting from an old photograph? Follow along, and I’ll show you when it happens to me! A woman asked me to do a drawing of her and her four brothers from the sixties! First, we asked, “What do you want? How big? Do I need to frame it for you?” Then, and only then, do we talk price. After that, I take a reference picture and place it in my “Artograph Prism Projector”. With a 30 inch x 22-1/2 inch piece of high-end drawing paper, I turned on the projector and traced out all the lines needed to start!

In the next installment, you will see me filling the faces!!
