Biro and Posca pens on A4 Bristol Board smooth.


When I get a chance I love to draw some of the sitters on Portrait Artist of the Year and portrait Artist of the Week (both on Sky Arts channel). 


Wonderful, inspirational Eddie sat for the final of Portrait Artist of the Year 2020. I love this particular pose/camera angle, it shows an intensity that belies contentment I think. I used lots of white and beige acrylic pen on her face to replicate the intense lighting of the setting, it is these pens that give a really textured effect.

Portrait of Eddie Izzard

  • Upon receipt please handle your portrait with care by the very edges, and do not touch or brush anything against the surface of the paper. It should be kept in a cool, dry environment, out of direct sunlight. I would recommend framing at the earliest opportunity, leaving it in the sleeve until then.

    Where work is on standard sized paper (A4/A3), it should be easy to frame with an off-the-shelf frame, readily available from shops with/without pre-cut mount. However, for optimal results and longevity I would advise going to a professional framer.
