Portrait painting is one of Lucy’s main activities and over the course of years she has painted many portraits of different people, both young and old.
“Portraiture is, I believe, the most difficult of all fine arts.
It requires great concentration, focus and patience.
Apart from a knowledge of anatomy, insight into the psychology
of the person to be portrayed is essential. A good portrait is
the result of the artist identifying with the subject. This does not
happen automatically as one must search for a person’s innermost
‘core’ in order to illuminate their best and most characteristic traits.”
– Lucy Besson
