It’s a common belief that no subject is more difficult than a human likeness. Actually, a good portrait calls for the same skills of observation and experience as a landscape or a still life. An artist who attains confidence at drawing portraits will have the confidence to draw anything. We begin with the anatomy and proportions of the human head, and move on to the skills of creating a convincing likeness.
