Color (Pastel) Portrait

Pastel is a drawing medium known for its immediacy, flexibility and brilliance of color. Pastels are almost pure color, with a weak gum or methylcellulose binder that is used to mould the pigments into sticks. Because there is no heavy medium, and the pigments are minerals, the colors never fade or yellow. I use high quality, dyed in the pulp, acid free paper, which is resistant to aging. The paper won't fade, turn yellow or become brittle. With proper framing, your pastel portrait could last hundreds of years!

With your order you pay a 20% deposit; the balance is due after you approve a photo of the finished portrait.

Generally, one subject will be drawn approximately 16" x 20", and more than one will be 20" x 25". Other sizes (up to 20" x 25") are available on request, but the price will not change.


The first subject, head and shoulders or half body, is $250. Each additional subject is $220.

Add 25% for full body, and $50 for a complicated background.
