"The painting or drawing of a portrait should be much more then an exact copy of a stiff static posed photo that distorts color and flattens and exaggerates form. A fine portrait is one that portrays grace and soul. The artist's sensitive selectivity and realistic touch is what creates a timeless essence of a human personality. "



Fine art oil paintings: portraits and the human figure.
 — More than just a likeness.

" Learn the conventions of proportions so well as to apply without effort. Learn anatomy from life drawing, ideal beauty from ancient sculpture, mastery of drawing from careful study, and measure proportion from the most beautiful modular types ... Once this knowledge is attained it has to be subordinated to freedom of touch, play of spirit, and exercise of judgment. Grace can arise only through the illusion of spontaneity." —Van Dyke
