Per Svanström
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
My name is Per Svanström, I'm 29 years old and I'm a self-taught pencil artist.

Drawing has always been a big passion in my life but only as a hobby. I have been making serious portraits for almost ten years and for every drawing I make I learn something new. How to draw different textures, sex, hair, skin etc. - It is all about experimenting. - To have fun when drawing. - That is how you learn.

"What I like most about drawing is to take on a new challange and to learn how to draw all shapes and colors in the gray scale.
It's not about making it look like a photo. I like the illusion of photorealism a drawing can make but you should still be able to see that it's made by pencil.

Current Residence: Stockholm
I am working on a project where I will create a new website for my art.

I need your help on the content of this webiste.

I get a lot of questions on what material I use, what techinque I use and so on and with this website I hope I will be able answer all those questions.

What I want to ask you is: What do you want to know about my drawings? What is the most interesting thing to know about how I create my drawings?

An example could be "I want to se step-by-step pictures on how you draw" or "I want to know what type of paper you use" or "I want to know how long it took to make the drawing". Any suggestion is a good suggestion.

Thank you for your help.

It's not finished yet but please have a look at the preview picture below.
