A man of faith

Weihbischof Otto Georgens_23x15

Very good, has that benign saintly look.

What a wonderful portrait - this man exudes warmth. The way you have captured the different textures is excellent and that lattice reflection on his forehead is masterly!

A kindly jolly face, wonderfully portrayed.

This is super Detlev! Lovely attention to lighting on his face and forehead.

A beautiful portrait Detlev. Your attention to detail is admirable, especially the reflections and light on the face.

What a lovely portrait. He looks like a interesting character. You’ve painted him very well- lovely details and light.

Fabulous portrait that has captured the face of a man who just oozes warmth and kindness.

Very well painted Detlev

good portrait - you're very versatile.

This is a wonderful portrait, such a happy, warm, kind face.

Terrific painting Detlev. Love the style.

A super portrait, beautifully painted, conveying character and personality.

Excellent portrait!

Thank you all so much for the many wonderful comments - I am honoured. The assessments of the Bishop's personality are absolutely spot on. He is a warm-hearted and above all humorous person with enormous charisma. I was allowed to photograph him on a hot summer's day for a publication and this is how the photo was taken which is the basis for my watercolour.
