AMAZING WORK! The expression and meaning of the faces and hands are really great.As usual, I found very compelling the painting with the more transparent background
yeah i agree with ariel about the background---beautiful painting! and may i say, your rendering is so realistic that when i first saw the photo of you with the painting, i immediately wondered, "now why the heck did he stick that guy (with no sense of personal boundaries) in the baseball cap in the foreground? strange compositional choice!"
