detailed family portrait book lovers

My Most Detailed Portrait Yet

Last month, one of my good friends contacted me asking if her idea for a family portrait was possible. She is an avid reader, and being an English teacher, it's no surprise books would heavily feature in her portrait. She sent me an array of family snaps, and some of the many books she and her husband have in their living room.

Here is one of my initial sketches:
Tiny Grey Rough
Below are a few close-up sections to see the detail with colour and shading applied:







The final portrait was printed on A1 gallery quality paper using archival inks.

If you are interested in commissioning me for your own Tiny Grey portrait, get in touch at (detailing what size of portrait you would like), and I'll send you across a quote.

All the best,
