Excellent! Gone are the days I felt the need to chide you for not using deep enough contrasts, that's for sure. Your saturated colors are very good, too. Jean, you are becoming a very good painter! :p What brush (or brushes) did you use?

Jean, this is a very effective portrait. You've gotten a real nice feel from your brush on this one. I likes!:)

Another good one Jean. I particularly like the moustache hair and the glasses. It is just good all round.
