Hello and Welcome!

Here you can view my realistic charcoal and graphite pencil portraits, as well as many other things that I sometimes find myself interested in.

I first picked up a pencil in January 2012 and I haven’t put it down ever since. I draw from pictures, prefer visually compelling images with high light-to-shadow contrast and I am absolutely in love with the beauty, complexity and uniqueness of every human face.

Since I am new to drawing, my technique, if it can even be called as such, can only be described as ‘doing what feels right’. I draw mostly for pleasure but I also undertake commissions.

All the Best,

— Nat.

David Bowie - Eyes of a Starman, India Ink on Canvas Drawing

India Ink (Faber Castell) on a narrow canvas panel. 14″ x 18″

I’ve never done ink on canvas before, but I thought it somehow fitting to the image I was trying to create.

One thing I love and hate about ink is how cheat-proof it is. I don’t get to erase it or to tweak it, not like with a faulty stroke of a pencil. With ink, my first pen stroke is my last. A bit like live music – once heard, the faulty note cannot be taken back, but the piece is all the more beautiful for its presence.

Portrait Of a Wise Man – Black and White Charcoal on Toned Paper

I’ve not drawn anything – on paper – in over two years. What made me return to it is the kindest, wisest man I have ever known.

Rest in peace, Ray.
