A portrait painting is a picture of a person, usually the face. It’s a typical type of portraiture that merely features the head and shoulders, or even just the head, of the subject. Portrait paintings can be created using a variety of media, including oil paint, acrylic paint, watercolor, and pencil drawing.

Portrait paintings are a great way to capture the likeness of someone you love. They can be used to commemorate special occasions, such as weddings, graduations, births, and anniversaries. Portraits can also be used to remember loved ones who have passed away.
