Ann, Wow! This is incredibly beautiful. Those eyes are so real and so intense! It could be a painting by an old master. You should be very proud of yourself and of your talent!

I agree totally - this is stunning! Such beautiful work on the eyes, the skin, those hands!!! You should be very pleased and DO NOT TOUCH IT (please??). It is finished and ready to hang.

Hi Ann,
The eyes of this man are so young; although, I see they do tell the story of his life.
Wonderful portrait!
Thank you,
Irina

The final result is just stunning. The fingers deep into the cheek, the expression of the eyes, the lines - perfect.
