I Want To Paint Your Portrait, Send Me Your Photo

Here are some faces I made using different techniques. These classes are available online
Abstracts are wonderful and I enjoy making them, but when I see beautifully executed figurative painting, they take my breath away. I have been drawing faces and people since I was in 5th grade and have never lost the fascination with the stories that faces can tell.

I love painting and drawing faces and want new models. I am offering to draw or paint your portrait for FREE. I will interpret your face in what ever medium that I feel is appropriate. I hope to stretch my painting technique by loosening my brush strokes, adding more abstracted shapes and colors and studying faces that are new to me.

After I have created 50 to 100 faces, I will publish a book with all of the portraits included.

Send me a clear photo of yourself. No babies or pets, please. email me at ezshwan4art@gmail.com
I've posted some sample of different faces I have made over the past couple of years.
