Portraits

I have long been fascinated with drawing human faces. In general, I find organic subjects (fruit, plants, landscapes) to be more forgiving than artificial ones (buildings, cars, bicycles). But faces are difficult—rendering a likeness is one of the most unforgiving endeavors in drawing, and I think it's partly for that reason that I'm so fascinated by the task.

Each one of us is completely unique; a line or a shadow in the right place can make the difference between a girl and her sister, a child and a man, a frown and a smile.
