Here is a portrait I did of the Italian actress Sophia Loren after a studying art and art history in Florence, Italy.

After studying the Masters in Italy,  I created a  chiaroscuro effect in this piece by using black and white chalk highlighted on brown prepared paper.

I included atmospheric perspective in the background architecture as she gazes toward the viewer in this portrait.

Two angels after a drawing by Bernardino Lanino

This soft style that I work in is reminiscent of Bernardino. I used techniques such as sfumato (allowing tones and colors to shade gradually into one another, producing softened outlines or hazy forms.
