When I was 8 years old, my sister had a book about portrait painting which arouse my interest, but neither of us dared to even try. I painted my first portrait when I was 13 and still don't know why the result didn't discourage me... Some years later I took a break just to start over in 2004.
I love to look at all those great portraits on this site, and thank you for any comments on my own ones.
