I learned to paint people in the South Pacific, because local friends found it strange that I was more interested in painting animals than people. Pets don't get the same reverence in some places as they do in the United States. I've heard that becoming a master of something requires at least 10,000 hours. Portraits probably need that again. It was frustrating and is still challenging.
