Portrait painting can be quite challenging and complex. There is a lot an artist has to know in order to produce appealing and desired portraits.

Painting a portrait is not just painting what you see, you must look beyond mere resemblance and accuracy of proportion.

It's usually preferable to go for more flattering representation rather than literal likeness. Believe me, most clients won't mind. It's great if you have a chance to get to know your client beforehand and learn something about his or her personality. Just remember that most portraits will require some degree of artistic license.
