Very interesting.
The same painting on your webpages shows more intense lighting.
Could be based on a study of Rembrandt's "Nightwatch".

Looked at your website! So many different approaches to your work! So very interesting.

I really like this self-portrait and I love this style. Are you developing it?

I'll be watching you!

The lighting is perfect in this and the color is very appealing to.

strong composition. the light on the face is particularly well done. the glow in the bottom left doesn't read as well for me; needs a smoother blending or you could leave it out altogether

a bit manga
which IMO is a good thing.
