Pencil Portraits by MLH

Commission - 'Family Pet, Dog Portrait'

In anticipation of an up-coming Pencil & Photo Portrait Show entitled 'About FACE:' to be held with Ewout de Gelder in Waterdown, Ontario for the duration of September and half of October, I thought it expedient to show you a few examples of 'what to expect'....

'Charles Pachter, Canadian Artist'
(and 'LIVING LEGEND' ... love ya Chas!)

Line 1: Queen Elizabeth II, Portrait of a Young Girl, Lester Pearson
Line 2: Ewout De Gelder, Charles Pachter, Nelson Mandela
Line 3: Paul Newman (in his younger years), Mordecai Richler, Bob Young

Benazir Bhutto, assassinated, December 2007

Local Postal Clerk, Waterdown

Ewout and I intend to do 'ricochet' portraits - stimulating each other with portraits that we've done independantly of each other, and then trying to 'mimic', to some degree, the essence of the 'others finished work' ... we are still 'in production', but the results, thus far, are proving not only FASCINATIN' but provocative. All in all, 'tis SERIOUS FUN ...

Additional samples follow of my pencil portaits done over the past five years ... (and yes, Commissions are ALWAYS welcome ... contact the artist.)
