Add a small splash of unique to your Life

There is truly nothing more stunning than a black and white graphite pencil portrait. To be able to inspire with a simple, yet classic image consisting of such a basic color palette is something many strive to achieve.

An interesting variance of standard graphite pencil portrait, is when the artist seeks to embrace the depth and character of the origianl artwork and warm it up with a splash of color. This selective color effect can create some of the most brilliant and breathtaking artwork ever seen.

Samples for this incredible process can be found all over the web, but the trick is always in the choices made by the artist. This is a true art form. To decide what significant or insignificant part of the photo will create that wow factor is the most crucial part to this process.
