I currently offer five different medium options. If you are interested in having a portrait commissioned, please take a look at the examples and descriptions provided and determine which would be best with the reference photo you have in mind. If you would like my professional opinion, please contact me. I am happy to help!
Graphite works well for detailed work, such as up-close skin and water. It has a feel similar to charcoal, but it does not get as dark and may appear shiny at some angles. Pairing this medium with charcoal is a good option for artwork that requires precision and contrast, such as portraits of animals.
Watercolor works well for capturing vibrant colors and presents opportunities for creative backgrounds. I have a tight watercolor style which allows me to incorporate plenty of detail and texture in my work. Watercolors can also provide a smooth feel in a painting, making it a good option for artwork containing vehicles or other such shiny props.
Soft pastel creates a charcoal-like consistency while providing color similar to oil pastel. Because of its consistency, soft pastel is an excellent medium for capturing details and textures in a face and gives me the opportunity to capture minute aspects of the human face, such as individual hairs, more clearly than I can in oil pastel.
