Perspective is an important aspect when it comes to the very being of a person. Everyone has a different image of each person they have met in their mind. It might be close to who the person actually is/was, or it might be something completely opposite. I use the image of these someones, seen from my perspective, and put it on a canvas using oil paints.
I use whatever brief passing thought I have of the person at the very beginning of creating the piece and put it on the canvas to the best of my ability. By using well thought out lighting, poses and clothing, I try to capture the essence of the someone, creating a timeless piece dedicated entirely to the individual.
