When it comes to a portrait of someone in the mode of this Fauve; or the Expressionist, Jawlensky, you could pick anyone whom you think might respond well to being drawn very simplistically and in strong powerful colours. So don't pick someone who is worried about what you will make them look like. The main thing is to choose a range of colours that will work in terms of form and solidity as in the example here which uses the light green colour as the shadow on the left side of the face while reserving the strong reds or oranges for parts of the face which are more prominent.
