This year I decided I wanted to work more on portraits. I feel portraits are the most intimidating subject of all, as not only is it quite difficult to do them, but also – in case of failure – do I even feel to not be doing justice to the person in question. Nonetheless I have been finding portrait work extremely gratifying. It is fun and enriching to study the traits of the persons and it helps so much to actually “see” the persons. I even have the impression portrait work helps me to better relate to people. Here’s a selection of the ones I did in the last weeks.
