Like your style, painting is very beautiful.

Thankyou thats very kind. I dont find portraiture easy so i appreciate your encouragement.

This is a wonderful portrait, Michael, I find it very captivating and seductive, and your technique looks like old masters. My best wishes for the New Year, Michael.

This has an alluring quality Michael. I like it very much.

Thankyou so much for these further comments they make me smile a great deal. Ive been growing abit tired of landscape you see so encouragement to paint portraits is greatly appreciated.

Best wishes to you for the new year cesare and to all my fellow artists.

So soft and beautiful an angelic face Michael. Have a happy and creative New Year !

Thankyou so very much carole. It was difficult because i painted her from my imagination just like i do when i paint landscapes.

You mentioned that my technique is like old masters cesare. Im extremely flattered by the comparison. Its true ive digested alot of the working methods of da vinci and Rembrandt. I was obsessed with the mona lisa a few years ago and i usually go for that softness that you find da vinci in my own work.

Haunting Michael: A face from a dream. Masterly use of tone and light.
