"Chapter 5 - Finding Yourself" Brayden Kolstad, Pencil on Paper, 2017. "My chapter was "Finding My Work" and I instantly knew what to do. When I started to grow and develop my own style of art was when I started to do Realistic Graphite Portraits. I enjoyed it so much that I did several of them and didn't want to stop, there was a point when I wanted to get into hyper-realism but realized that I needed to grow more before I could achieve that goal. The last time I did a graphite portrait was back in 2015 for my grandparents. It was a massive piece measuring at 18" x 24". When I started making portraits they were small and fit into a 8.5" x 11" piece of paper which is why I decided to go back to where I started and see how much I have grown to develop my own work."
