Portrait Drawings by Simon Taylor

Pencil on Paper

Pencil or chalk drawings make the perfect gift where size is limited, budget is restricted, and a more subtle portrait is desired. Portrait drawings are timeless and classic and are both evocative and enduring. It is the perfect medium for capturing subjects of all ages, but particularly at either end of the age spectrum. My portrait drawings can be highly detailed, or loose and sketchy.

Why commission a portrait drawing?

A hand drawn pencil portrait is an evocative way to capture the likeness and personality of someone special in your life, or a friends. Unlike photography, the artist has freedom to capture individuality, and to liberties by focusing on specific traits to capture something much deeper than just a likeness, and produce an artwork which has wonderful aesthetic appeal.
