Welcome to portraits in pen-and-ink and oil by Jonathan Machen. I am increasing my availability for portrait commissions.

what qualifies as a portrait?

Look at some of the examples I’ve put on this page. What could I draw for you, that will end up as a finished drawing that will bring out the essence of a person, place or thing? What can I draw for you, that will depict someone or something that has meaning for you personally, be it your pet, your house,  your vehicle, landscape or geographical area? It could be your best friend, your Mom, a flower – or even a rock!

For you, I could also draw a concept, – a technical illustration – a depiction of an idea – anything is fair game, as long as it is not offensive or derogatory.
