When I was asked to do this commission I was not sure how it would turn out. With only two photos of MachuPichu and two of the couple I had to make a composite image to work from.

This is a recently completed family portrait in soft pastels ( Art Spectrum) and pastel pencils ( Derwent, Conte, Cretacolour) on a 50cm by 70cm sheet of Art Spectrum Colourfix paper.
