I enjoy seeing brush strokes in a painting. If the painting is so smooth you almost get an airbrush effect as I did in a previous portrait of Miss M. I understand the challenge and satisfaction of seeking a photographic effect in a portrait. but that is not what I seek. I want to see the painterly quality.
