Types of Portraits:
"LITTLE JEWEL"

ABOUT

Little Jewels are a special type of portrait that were created to solve two challenges:

•  Clients who want to own art but have a limited budget.

•  Reference photos that are too blurry or poor-quality to see detail.

They are called Little Jewels because they are small (like little precious gems) and often have splashes of bright, jewel-like colors in the pencil work. The small size and the quick, loose pencil strokes allow me to keep the cost down. They are also "no frills", they don't come with the extras that my other portrait types do, like notecards.

Little Jewels are a popular choice for portraits purchased as gifts.

WHY REFERENCE PHOTOS MATTER

My portrait style is very detailed.

If the photo I'm working from is blurry, I can't capture much detail in the portrait....

However, I can work in a looser style that results in a beautiful portrait, even if you have poor-quality photos! I call that my Little Jewel style. Here are some examples:

A Little Jewel is a simple, expressive portrait done in a quicker, slightly looser style than my more expensive portraits. I call them Little Jewels because they are small - precious little gems - and because they have jewel-like colors.
