I guess that means to me capturing the essence of whom you are painting. Love your portraits people and animal. xox
Hi Corrine, thanks for stopping by. I mulled your thought...I think essence is different, essence [to me] is more like a subtitle of a creature that captures its personality and soul resonance. I think a portrait includes non soul things too-like the daily minute by minute earth bound characteristics we all have [like how I comb my hair] . Essence to me is spirit.
Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
