A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.
Light and Shade in Portraiture
The precise judging of tonal values provides the underlying structure of a portrait. No other factor is more important to the portrait's success. This video explains the bases on which these critical judgments are made... the six kinds of tone... the nine-tone value scale... "reading" values... making a tonal study of simple objects... making a tonal study of complex objects... Relationship of light and shade in portraiture.
Painting the Facial Features
