Pastel Portraits

I came across an artists work online a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with her style so we contacted her to do some portraits of our kids. This month she's doing Alice and Oscar, and later this fall she'll portray Truman and probably Kaya (our dog) as well. Below his her start. I'll update the thread as she goes along. I'm stoked about her start!

This is the photo that she's working from for Alice:



This is her progress after two days:





This is her progress on Oscar in the same two days. You can see the photo she's working from here.

Can you share the link for the artist's website? And how much roundabout figure is fine do these portraits run? I am loving what I am seeing from your post.

You can pm me the info.

Nice artwork for sure! Can't wait to see the final outcome!

However I won't want portrait of my cats. Some of my friends are already on the fence about whether to start calling me crazy cat lady. A cat portrait will definitely help them making final decision

I have a feeling it will get yanked, but I'm glad I caught it before it was This might be the perfect Christmas present for myself. A lovely portrait of my boys.

If I had 'friends' mock my cats or I, then I would probably consider re-titling our relationship.

Agreed. If my 'friends' don't like me exactly the way I am, crazy cat lady and all, they can move on to finding another 'friend'.
