I remember you...checked your site then and now...looking for more. Where've you been "learning" oils? Like your color and the expression says it all. Strong painting.

the transparency of your paint is incredible.
sure the comp is nice, the geometries, the draughting, the figure, the shirt, but the variance of color within each complex is what makes this get out of bed.

Jeremy... you have made the transition from watercolor to oil very, very well!! The feeling of transparency is definately a plus, and your brush strokes "ain't too bad either!" Jim
