There are two kinds
of portrait: those that
look directly at you
and those that don't.

People look across

across time. Canvas
portraits will usually
outlive their subjects.

The contrast of opaque
and transparent passages
of paint helps to convey
the illusion of solid form.

In this painting, the initial
underpainting around the,
neck has been purposely
left unfinished.
