Blog / 2012 / Between Portraiture and Figurative Art

February 6, 2012

Too often, the fundamental and important differences between portraiture and figurative art are confused, and that pains me since I don’t much like the tone of a lot of figurative art. Care is what makes the painting of a person a portrait, and nothing else will get the job done! You can commission me to paint your portrait.
