You’ve undoubtedly seen a street artist make pictures of passers-by and sell them. Maybe you even purchased a self-portrait and have it hanging on the wall or stashed away in one of your drawers. Street painters have a lot of skill and precision. However, they are often underappreciated, and their works are frequently sold for low rates. It’s incredible how these painters can complete artwork in such a short amount of time despite working in such a noisy environment.
