Hey Joe! Looking good! That's a great expression, and I hope it is indicative of how you're feeling now!

Good to have you back!

Hey Joe,

this is great as always! You have captured his expression so well!

Looking forward to the next one...

Fantastic! I love the simplified tonal areas on the subject. It gives this portrait a very clean, lively feeling. I am less keen on the treatment of the background which looks a bit laboured by comparison - I would have like to have seen a similar treatment to that used on the figure. Nevertheless, it is a super painting.

Great to have you posting pastels again. :D
