Realistic pastel pencil portrait

For a pastel painting I use a combination of pastel pencils, panpastels and soft pastels on good quality pastel paper to ensure the longevity of the artwork. A simple background is always included as I find it gives my pastel drawings a more painterly feel. A more elaborate and detailed background is possible upon request.

Please note that the prices listed below are for the drawing of one animal. In case you want to have more than one animal in the same painting let me know and depending on the composition and size of the painting, I will give you a quote.
