Jack Nicholson Colored Pencil Portrait
24" x 22" - 1991 - Prismacolor Colored Pencils on Canson Mi-Teintes Paper
The cunning devilish personality that he portrayed for so many years onscreen comes to life in this full color colored pencil portrait of the iconic actor.
I've been drawing and illustrating portraits for over 35 years. Contact me if you'd like one especially for you or a loved one. As long as I can remember I wanted to be a portrait artist. At the age of 16 I drew my first pencil portrait and was hooked. I started taking on portrait commissions on a weekly basis ( drawing in black & white pencil ) some in pen and ink. Continuing well into my twenties - after completing approximately 700 black and white pencil portraits I felt I had mastered the Medium enough to move on to Color Portraits.
I mostly work from photographs, because the portrait is often used as a gift for unsuspecting loved ones. Sometimes the client will ask if it can be drawn or painted from multiple photographs, in order to capture a particular expression, a favorite outfit and a hairdo from another. Whatever is needed will be incorporated into the completed pencil Portrait. On more than one occasion the client will ask at the last minute to include their pet into the artwork, making it that much more a personal family portrait.
A pencil portrait can capture as much detail and realism as an oil painting portrait. The comments and positive feedback I have received over the years has been overwhelming. Some have even called my pencil portraits "pencil paintings." A Pencil Portrait drawn from your photograph makes a unique personalized Gift for any occasion and all you have to do is provide me with a Photograph. Pencil Portraits drawn from your photos make unique presents sure to become Family Heirlooms that will be treasured and passed on for generations. Immortalize your Loved Ones with hand drawn pencil portraits.
