Don’t paint a figure; Paint a person.
Don’t paint a head; Paint an individual.
Be accurate, but see beyond the surface.
Beware of pictures that are correct but lifeless.
The face is the window to the soul.
All of humanity’s greatness and frailty can be found in a single pair of eyes.
Portraits by Peder Krøyer (1851-1909). Thanks to Tim Adkins for the close-up.
