Fantastic. The hands in particular are amazing, and I love how three-dimensional this looks.

brilliant! love everything about it. The ash on the cigarette is so realistic, I'm almost holding my nose because I can't stand the smell lol

Thanks! This is my first attempt at doing a flesh tones with paint, I usually just draw in black and white with pencil or pen. It's acrylics on bristol, about 11x14".

the eyes are terrific. as well as the hands--you even reported the "clubbed" fingernails of a lifetime smoker. i can hear the wheezy cough! even though this is clearly a painting and not a photo, there is life in this picture--i expect to hear him speak or see him move. chris

Nicely done and has a sense of being that is terrific in my book.
had to come back in and tell you that tonight, as we were walking to rugby, we were following along behind a man who was smoking (yuk!!) and I was immediately reminded of your wonderful painting:)

This is really cool! I love the reddish tint to his glasses, the shading on the nose, and, as others have said, the hands are stunning!
