Roman frescoes were made the same way they are made today. Paint is put directly on to wet plaster. When dry, a fresco is a permanently decorated wall. (or ceiling, as in the case of the Sistine Chapel)

What is a good example of Roman Portrait painting?

You will not find a good example of Roman portrait painting. Roman portraiture was sculptural (busts). Roman paintings were not on canvass like today's paintings. They were frescoes; that is, murals where water-based paint was applied on freshly-laid, wet lime plaster which, with the setting of the plaster, becomes an integral part of the wall. However, frescoes were not used for portraits.
