It is great Alicia...Love the movement that the light blue gives.
His right and left wrist seem to be different sizes to me.

Another incredible masterpiece! The colors are just beautiful - I really like your use of warm colors in the clothing, background and hammer - what a great piece! :)

Beautiful. I love the concentration of the face.

Absolutely lush. The blues and oranges, warms and cools, are beautiful, the subject invites me to linger. What a wonderful painting. Thanks for posting.

I like this work alot.
His expression is really good and the head's angle is convincingly depicted.
The foreshortening of his left arm is also realistic; I wonder if the wrist is a tad too thick ?

Stunning. The hammer handle looks like a little lighter value than it should be.

Nicely done, as always!
