Because people expect them to look human. I did a goat once, does that count? Seriously, I admire those of you who can get such amazing likenesses and also express the personality or mood of the person depicted. Portraiture seems like such an exacting science - much easier to move a tree in a field than a nose on a face!
That's funny, Donna, but I have to agree with you. It seems that portraiture is the most challenging subject in a painting, regardless of the medium. Maybe that's why I'm attracted to it.

I have to say I love these two pieces. They are just delightful in color choices - especially behind the head in that ruby color of the second piece and the lavenders in his hair.
Thank you. Those colors are a gamble.

I too like both, but especially the second one. Aside from the fact that your drawing is beautifully done, Barb nailed it when she pointed out the ruby color and lavender in the hair. Really nice work. I hope you continue to explore this style. I look forward to seeing more.
