portraits » personal & public » studies

Usually a study is not used for an official portrait in a public place. However, this page is included under both personal
and public portraits since some of the studies may be preliminary to a final public portrait.

A "study" in portraiture can occur under various circumstances. Generally they are fairly quick paintings with loose brushstrokes.
Sometimes they are done during a workshop, either as a student or teacher. Other times they are preliminary to a final
painting to work out color and composition. Most artists will sell their studies when someone is interested. And,
some artists offer a "study" as an alternative to a more finished portrait with tighter strokes.
The degree of finished detail can vary from one artist to another.
