Faces in Color

A portrait serves as a gateway into the depths of an individual’s being. It goes beyond mere depiction of a face and capturing a likeness. It is not simply about portraying a person as alive. Rather, a portrait is a profound undertaking. It is futile to embark on painting a portrait without the intention of delving into the essence of the subject. It is within the person that their true essence resides. The face, with all its expressions, merely serves as a reflection of this inner world.
