Pastel Paintings are so beautifully subtle but still can acheive dynamic results. Lets get started on one for you. For more details
Graphite Drawings or Graphite/White Charcoal on toned paper… the results really give a sense of space, looseness, fresh and alive.

Love to create original paintings and drawings, preferring not to specialize in just one genre… alI life fascinate me.
What is the main focus of my art?
If you think of a Caricature Artist, they bring out the funniest expressions of a person… my approach is to focus on expressing the soul and the energy of the subject, resulting in not just a likeness but a sense that they are actually there.
Along with commission work, I have the desire to share my techniques and tips to help others find the wonderful benefits of creating Art.
“Observing from an open heart and a quiet mind brings forth the creativity from a beautiful, serene place within.”
What people think of my work
Dave Porter is a genius at painting. He has just finished a portrait of my Grandchildren and it is truly amazing.
His art is so real, so close to reality. There is a human feeling in every portrait. Of course the one of @AymericJett is my favourite !!
Love my Baby Orangutan painting. It is like looking at the real thing. He has captured it’s spirit and soul… I absolutely love it.
