As you know by now, painting commissioned portraits is an essential part of my daily artistic activity and has been for more than twenty-five years. I like to talk about it over and over again and hope that you can benefit from this.
I want to repeat this week what I consider to be the most important properties for a portrait painter:
- Good drawing skills and a thorough mastery of painting technique, above all.
- Good sense of composition.
- Good sense of colour.
- Good communication skills.
