What is the trick to a great portrait? You have to catch a likeness - that's a given. You have to make an interesting painting. Also a given. Combining the two is rare. The subject must be pleased, must feel honoured and flattered but also feel that you have been true to who they really are. That you have portrayed an insight into them as a person that transcends a snapshot. That they have been seen, understood.
