Looking for a Muse. Asking the Masters.

Not every face is enough inspiring to make a portrait of. The face should show the life, the experiences. To me the most important thing of portraiture is to catch the charisma of the person on it. Amedeo Clemente Modigliani, one of the greatest expressionistic portraitists in XXth centaury, said: "What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the unconscious, the mystery of the instinctive in the human race."
I'm still not enough experienced to find it in every person. But I am exercising on friends with very strong personality like for instance Vivianna a very good friend of mine. She is the Muse.
