Raffaele, 95 years old

Love the 'feel' of this one, Cesare, the pencil lines add so much and the eyes are superbly drawn.!

Thanks so much, Thalia.

I really like the colours you have use for his skin tones Cesare. It’s a great portrait, and hard to believe that he is 95yrs old!

Lot of emotion here, like it.

Has a real African feel of the African masks

Nice portrait of Raphaelle, showing the light source reflected upon his features and pigments do reveal his character well, his eyes are steady and show attentiveness too!

Thank you Chrissie, Heather, and Angela for your kind comments. Hi Dennis, I wonder if you have had one pint too many looking at this old Italian man like an African mask.
