Artist - Dave Ettridge - Fine Art Portraits

Still looking for the perfect gift?

Are you looking for the perfect birthday present, anniversary gift, Christmas present or even a truly unique and personal Mother's Day or Father's day present?

How about commissioning an original pastel picture of your parents, partner, the children, the family pet or even a still life image of your favourite object/personal belonging? 

Commissioned portraits from photographs of family, pets,  wild animals or objects in pastel or graphite pencils

Self Portrait in Pastel by Dave Ettridge

It takes great pleasure for me to write this post.  It is a post to promote the work of a great and establised artist, Dave Ettridge.

Dave Ettridge has been an artist all his life and has been gifted with a natural ability to turn his hands to many creative uses.  Which ever art or craft he applies himself to, the results are always amazing.  Over the past few years he has channelled his talents on his fine art drawings, mainly through the medium of pastel or graphite pencils, although he is equally talented with oils and watercolour paints.

Below is a small sample of his work.  If you would like to view more of his drawings, either click on one of the pictures or one of the links on this post.
