A graduate of Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts, Port has perfected his trademark technique of using acrylic paint and colored pencil on board to create breathtakingly life-like portraits. “In the first stage of my artistic process, I use graphite pencils to create the under-drawing,” Port explains. “I then begin to paint over that with acrylics. Next, I use various colored pencils to further render and pull out the highlights. So, I start by going from light to dark and eventually dark to light. The last and most rewarding stage comes at the end when I polish up the painting by putting in all the final details.” That an artist can so defy reality by replicating—and even improving upon—actual photographs is a wonder to behold.
