ARTIST CHALLENGE: the subtle art of portrait painting. With Richard Tiejun Chao, Olga Kharchenko and Jenny Medved. Portraits may indeed be one of the most arduous subjects artists can tackle in watercolour. Expressing emotions and rendering the likeness of the model are indeed two of the main challenges painters have to face. We asked Jenny Medved, Richard Chao and Olga Kharchenko to share their thoughts on the question.
