Brilliant Ian. This is such a wonderful strong face that it merits the great colour choices you've made.

Thanks Heather, I'm very pleased with end result and a good reference image makes the difference

A great painting Ian, like it very much.

Thanks for the nice comment Russell

An excellent portrait that has captured your string character deep in thought.

Sorry strong.

Really striking portrait, Ian - great choice of background colour

Thanks Chris, strong or string will do for me!

Thanks Hilary, I've used that background colour previously and it does work well with the Black/Green of the portrait

This has great impact Ian. I don’t know if it’s an optical illusion, but I see pink in the whites on his face?

Love this.

Thanks Frank, yes it must be an optical illusion, I didn't use any pink/red on the portrait
