Hello Gia,

I think this young chap has a lot of energy and it shows in your picture......I like the use of mixed media, because I believe you should use whatever you think can give the result you are looking for. This painting of yours looks really good and in real life is probably better appreciated. The close up gives some idea, at least.......:)

Thank you Andy,Murals by Aga and Artbabe21 I sure appreciate your comments,
I don't always feel that confident about my work, as I really
are a newbie to portraiture, studied it for a bit over a year, I want
to try all kinds of media...maybe not all at once.l....lol
