I love this. He looks like a storyteller and that looks like a great place to hear them.

This is beautifully done, Frottis. He gives a sense of history/experience and seems so approachable. The shadows behind the chair and on the table really highlight your storyteller... excellent!

I love the way that you did the lighting on his shirt, and the way you captured his expression. The only criticism I'd have is that I can't really tell what is behind the table......it may just be the photo that looks that way, or my computer screen though.
Keep up the great work!

I love the feeling of this painting, you can almost hear his voice as he tell the story. The painting is very well done. Evelyn

Thanks every one for looking and for feedback. Amber- I think thats a chair behind the table,but now that you mention it, It's a bit confusing and should be simplified. Thanks again-Mark
