This is amazing and so realistic, if the rest of your portraits are of this quality you will be a large sensation for sure! Good luck.
What a lovely thing to say. Thankyou so much.

This is simply mindblowing!!
You’re too kind. Thanks man.
Wow!!! Great work!!!!. I do know what you mean about the colors being different that the real painting. It’s something that I, and many others battle with quite a bit… Some paintings more than others. But this painting dose capture your awesome talent!!!!
Hey Mr Branco, thanks for your comment.
I would love to get a decent digital SLR at somepoint to take photos of my work. Hopefully if I sell some paintings, I could buy one!
this is stunning. you did the metallic part of the gold so well… it looks real!
Hey Lauren, thanks for commenting.
The gold paint on his forehead was pretty tuff to get right, but I think it turned out ok.
Wow great job! At first, I thought it was a photograph, but I saw the word “painting” and had to check it out. You did a really great job. I’m especially impressed with the beard and the gold paint on his skin.
Thanx a lot Keto. It was definately good practice.
The whites may be a little bright, but otherwise this looks like a photo for sure. Freakin’ amazing work!!!!
The beard is probably the worst part of the painting. To be fare, the scan over-exposed the whites. They’re not so bright in real life, but I may add some glazes to tone it down a bit.
Thanks for commenting MoonSpiral!
Wow!!!!! Amazing and truly stunning!!! Wow!!
Hey Charles, thanx for your kind words.
This is so real that it could be taken for a photograph. Just stunning piece of art. love the beautiful dark brown eyes the window of the sole. Congratulations on your exhibition I am sure it will be a sell out. Where are you holding your exhibiton in Bristol ?? Sandy
Hi Sandy, thanks for your kind words.
I really enjoyed painting this. It was my first portrait (obviously it’s not my first painting!) so I’m pleased with the results. His eyes were definately one of the main reasons I chose the reference in the first place.
I’m not sure of the dates for the exhibition yet, but it will probably be at Centrespace (www.centrespacegallery.com) which is in Bristol City Centre. I might also be having a solo exhibition in Bristol at some point next year, and hopefully one in London (but that’s all a bit Hush-Hush at the mo!).
Some much work, so little time!
I will definately post something in the forum when it’s time to start promoting the exhibition.
Have a good day.
looks so real :)very very nice
Hey Brandon, thanks for your comment, it’s really appreciated.
