I have observed some amazing artists work on portraits. They have their own styles, techniques, and rhythm. But they have one thing in common. It is this - the face on the canvas starts to show the likeness right from the beginning. You can tell its going to look right.
I feel its very empowering. Knowing you are going in the right direction boosts your confidence, helps you create better and ultimately earns you respect as an artist. That's what we strive for - being respected by your peers.
That's it for today. More tomorrow.
