Hand Drawn Portraits by Sophie Louise
Creating beautiful one of a kind portrait art with great attention to detail and a focus on capturing the spirit of the subject
"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"
I have always loved drawing but a lack of self confidence and a determination to become a Vet meant it was relegated to a hobby. It took falling into a customer service driven retail career and two kids to finally push me to persue my passion.
Drawing fills me with a deep sense of satisfaction, the ability to create something beautiful with relatively simple tools is endlessly inspiring.
I started with graphite and I fell in love with the detail I could capture so when it came to adding colour to my work colour pencil was a natural next step.
Colour pencils are a fantastic artists tool allowing me to add layers of pigment to create a rich texture and still get the small details that bring a portrait to life.
