Patience, attention and dedication

Ans draws portraits in black and white. Because in this way, the essence of the person manifests itself better. Colours distract. But first a photograph, first an encounter with the person to be portrayed. Seeing and fathoming. In search of the person behind the face. Of the uniqueness of the human being. The beautiful, the positive. The purity of a child. The wisdom of an old man. Then the choice. Of the best photograph. The harmony between image and feeling. Then drawing. With a lot of patience, attention and dedication. Until she catches this human being, this soul – then it feels good. Then the portrait will show a striking resemblance even after thirty years. Because the soul of this human being will be recognizable within it.

Commissioned portraits from Naf. 700 ex OB.
