the image is emerging toward the viewer, a radiance being unleashed from the canvas, it sustains very intense interaction with the viewer - it is very alive:
the green and the blue are just enough to ground it without breaking the 'trance'. The deep darks help fix the colorskin, and accentuate the overall intensity of the piece.
thankyou for posting it.

A limited palette where less IS more!

got to be one of my favorites...
so life like, yet almost god like or ghost like with the radiance...
is it real or a vision...
love the colors...

Wonderful use of complimentary and contrasting colors- vibrant shimmering light. My only concern is the distortion of the face or more particularly, the neck area- and this only bothers me because the rest of the figure, although rendered loosely, is handled with a fair amount of accuracy. This is most often a problem when using photos & not desiring (rightly so) to stick closely to them. I have no problem with the distortion by itself and give you credit that you were well aware of it. As I looked again, I don't really know how the distortion could have been carried throughout the painting. I do still feel my initial reaction though.

That your works are letters and numbers.
I have a hard time finding favorites.
That is my critique.

wp = waypoint?
Hope he hasn't hurt his foot on a coral reef? lol... The subject has a maturity in the face, yet head-to-body proportions appear youthful (ie, head looks a tad big). Wonderful luminosity. The darks make this sing...Enchanting. How large???

great job!
maybe a little bit more background over the head of the child would frame him better.
