The Making of a Portrait
In this section Tom will walk us step by step through
his thought processes in making some of his portraits.
This can be of interest both to aspiring artists and
also to those interested in commissioning a portrait.
Since no two projects are the same, no two procedures
are the same. Some portraits require more sittings and
more time than others.
Due to recent interest in the official portrait of
the former Speaker of the House, which was painted in
the year 2000, that painting will be the first one featured
in this section.
