Examples of portraits
Importance on portraying, stories, and feelings of individuals are the essence of the portrait style.

Claude Monet

Haile Selassie 

Water colour and pencil on canvas

Born Tafari Makonnen in 1891, his name was later changed to Haile Selassie. This portrait is about his eyes. He is trying to be calm, but you can see some dis-ease in his posture. The research shows that his upbringing put importance on forgiving, and praying to God. Selassie followed some teachings of God, but did not follow all of them as Jesus did. Hailie Selassie and Jesus Christ of Nazareth are two different people. Hailie Selassie is sometimes said to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ but this is not true.

Then I will draw near to you for judgement; I will be swift to bear witness against the sorcerers, (magicians/wizards,  preachers of mortality, doctors, witch doctors/physicians/psychiatrists,police,solicitors/lawyers/judges/jailers/soldiers/politicians),  against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired workers in their wages, the widow, and the orphan, against those who thrust aside the alien, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.
