MY COMMENTS:
2nd gray painting

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I am not too sure on this one. Doesnt have the same effect as the first. Can you tell those are my hands in front pushing back?

What are your thoughts?
It was still wet when I took this and the runny parts will tone down some when dry.

yeah it's emotive, I'd say.........Now don't be twiddling with any of those runs........every one looks 'right' .....each is playing a role in the painting... very strong image this.

strong image - well painted. The hands are doing the job. Did you use the computer to help you develop the composition?

wow..there is soooooo much emotion in this! the hands do come through.. i think you should leave them because i like the subtleness of them...

i love it! are you still working on it or is it done?

WOW Shawn! What a great self portrait you've done. Using such simple shapes, you completely captured yourself. I knew this was you the instant it opened.

I am VERY impressed!
