I would say working on the portrait for someone that u know is different from drawing the super model from magazine…….
when you someone is unique
when you have the specific perception on the person
you know you need to hold the feeling and make it happen on the drawing
i guess this is how you interpret you idea on the blank paper
and the truth – the drawing must be pretty itself.
that’s very interesting when i draw and know this is not yet finish
something missing on the portrait and it’s exciting to find way solving problem
