Sometimes I surprise myself with what I’m able to achieve when I put all I have into a drawing. When there’s no disturbance and all the artistic juices are flowing through my veins.

Today I’m sharing this birthday portrait of a man I made recently, he was turning 60 and his family decided to surprise him with this beautiful gift.

I made this with Prismacolor pencils and pastels on grey straw board paper.

Here’s a few progress shots…

As I often do, I started sharing by defining values with charcoal before going in with colors…

Maravilloso. 👍😊

Thanks!

This is really impressive. Nice work. You are a good artist

Thank you very much friend 🙏🏾☺️

This is amazing work! The way you use your pastels gives so much texture to the skin and clothing, and with your hyper-realism style, I would have sworn this was a photo. Excellent art. !PIZZA

Thank you! I can tell you’re an artist yourself because you understand these things. I’ll go check you out too.

PIZZA!
