About "Little Princess"
Inspired by a photograph from The Green Studio in Bloemfontein. I asked the photographer's permission to make use of her photo. Created for the main purpose of improving my portfolio as I often create baby portraits for customers.
Unfortunately, many of my commission customers don't always send high-quality pics which makes it extremely difficult to work from.
Originally, I did the drawing just in charcoal and water but decided to add colour and experiment with soft pastels which I don't work with often. I am fairly happy with results as it looks way different than my standard drawings. Definitely considering creating more portraits with soft pastels as it is a nice means to add colour that is quick and less messy than painting. Luckily, the parent also loved the drawing so it was sold the same day I finished the drawing.

I am a fine artist, based in the Free State that specializes in classical realistic portrait drawings and paintings. I mostly work with mediums like oil, pencil, charcoal, and sometimes even with multimedia.
My work consists mostly of female subject matter as I love feminine and dainty details. My vision is to help people see the beauty in each woman (independent of race or culture). I believe that God made each of us unique, because he loves diversity and that we are all just flowers in God's Garden.
My goal is to become one of South Africa's top realistic portrait artist and I hope to improve my portraiture by learning as much as I can from old and contemporary portrait masters like John Singer Sargent and Daniel Gerhardz.
I do various portrait commission from baby portraits to wedding couples. You are welcome to contact me anytime for a free quote.
