Denny and the Boys

A commissioned portrait of a man called Denny with his three sons. The drawing was done for Denny’s wife, who I work for, as her gift to him for Christmas. I combined several photographs of Denny and the boys into one image to draw from. I used graphite pencils on bristol board paper to create a smooth, realistic drawing.

Commission: Christmas Cards

The three Christmas cards are commissions I’ve done for my uncle over the past few years. I photographed the religious scenes from stained glass windows in my local chapel, and then recreated them using watercolour paints and graphite pencil. The first card (left) was completed in 2010, and it depicts ‘The Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple’. The second card (middle) was completed in 2015, and it depicts ‘The Nativity’. The third card (right) was completed in 2016, and it depicts ‘The Flight into Egypt’.

I had my first experience with real estate photography over the weekend. I was given the opportunity to explore and photograph a variety of beautiful houses, buildings and landscapes around my local area.

Johnnie

A commissioned portrait of a man called Johnnie. The drawing was done for Johnnie’s granddaughter, who was in my primary school class for seven years. She chose an endearing photograph of Johnnie, which captures the personality that his family know him for. I used graphite pencils on bristol board paper to create a smooth, realistic drawing.

It feels really good, yet really strange, to have a student write about your art, considering I was studying famous artists like Salvador Dali back in A-Level. But I'm glad he chose to study a complete unknown like myself lol.
