More portrait ponderings! The flood of submissions to In Your Face continues. We’re close to an amazing 5,000 portraits already. Collectively they raise so many issues. If you make a self-portrait for example, which ‘you’ of the many ‘you’s’ do you depict? And if you depict a partner, a family member, or friend or neighbour, which of their many personality traits do you highlight? Every great portraitist from Leonardo to Warhol has struggled with the problem. Have you found a solution?
