There are many who feel that the ability to capture the essence and image of a person on canvas is the truest form of art. I am not certain of that. But in my experience, there is a personal aspect of portraiture that cannot be denied.
The study required during the course of the painting brings you close to the subject, whose image will probably never again be examined with a greater degree of scrutiny.
It is the personal involvement, the challenge of getting it right, and the visceral response of the subject to the finished work, that makes portraiture so interesting and rewarding to me.
