Portrait Sketches

These Portrait Sketches take about seven minutes. Using a light-weight easel they are mainly done at different local church, community and charity events.  They are normally offered free with donations to charity, if wished, and are then retained by the 'sitter'. I prefer to use charcoal on A3 pastel paper. For outside venues  a patio-umbrella or gazebo is used to protect against bright sun or pouring rain! I have been doing these off-and-on since 1982, originally calling them 'Caricatures' and using a large felt-tip pen. Later I felt 'Portrait Sketches' was more appropriate as they are a bit more serious than a 'Cariicature'. Here is a very small sample of the hundreds done, together with some photos in action.
