Pencil Work


James Ewell Brown Stuart

Angel on the Battlefield

If you are considering commissioning a custom pencil piece, please feel free to contact me through email or even by phone. I want the buyer to be 100% satisfied and I'm willing to work with you until that goal is reached.

The first step in the process is to decide what you want as the subject of your piece. I can work off a a supplied photograph (it must be a photograph that you've taken or that you have permission to use). I have also done work by shooting the models or images myself. Once a scene is agreed upon, I start out by doing a couple thumb nail sketches.

If you are looking for a particular regiment or battle scene please contact me so we can discuss the process and pricing.

All pieces are shipped with insurance via US Postal Service Priority Mail. S&H fees are included in the price structure. S&H vary depending on the size
and value of the piece selected and its shipping destination.

Email for exact figures. Framing available upon request.

In the noise and confusion of battle, it was often impossible to hear the officers’ orders, so each order was given a series of drumbeats to represent it. Sold out
