Face to face with MissT

The perils of blogging portraits is that clients are appalled to see how unflattering they can look during this process. A portrait is a concoction of many ingredients. It can require a good physical likeness so good draftsmanship is the first on the list. Achieving this is, for me, a process of exploration. Slowly and after some contemplation an image appears. Some of the mark making is structure for further work and at other times this structure fails and is removed. A portrait is a narrative about a person and as with all good story telling not all details need to be used and those that are used are important to the ending.
