Remarkable job. One of your best. What patience to paint those stars.

Suggest a quieter tone tie would focus more on the President's face.

Excellent likeness! My first thought was that his skin could be a touch darker, but after a quick google image search, I've come to the conclusion that this is pretty much spot on!! Well done!

Great job....I like the tie - I don't think it takes away from his face at all.
Wow!!

I would like to see more freedom, more movement. The eyebrows are too exact, the skintone is too even. Where's the worry and the mystery? But I'm just picking. Really is a great painting as far as getting a likeness and so forth, just a little too "nice" for me. I couldn't paint that well, though, so I'm just ranting.
