I have been making some portraits of my family and myself recently. It’s so hard to get a true likeness. I really enjoyed the whole process of really looking at an image and making adjustments.

    1. I think I need a bit of both, I feel like it has to have something that’s accurately portrayed even if it’s not all perfect. So if I can get the eyes or the lips right then I don’t focus as much on the things that don’t look quite right. I think as an art teacher you spend so long making students get things right that it sticks to you like glue 🙂
