There is a reason why a lot of artists paint expressionless dead pan type faces....painting smiling happy people is hard! I suppose that I like the challenge of it and it's also nice to have someone smiling up at me while I'm working ;)
I'm constantly inspired (and humbled) by great artists like Sundblom who seemed to do it with such ease.

Here's a quickie. I really like to paint profiles, there is so much variety in peoples faces and profiles break that down to the basic form. I suppose that a lot of artists avoid them because they can sometimes seem static but there's something very iconic about them to me.
