“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.” Oscar Wilde
I don’t fully agree with Oscar Wilde, but maybe I should not say that, he will not be able to clarify his meaning. The artist’s feeling will find its expression through the style, and as the artist get better, the work will be recognisable as made by this particular artist although the models are changing.
Personally I take great pleasure in the interaction with the models as I search for the best way to capture a fragment of time of each and every one.
