Brad, this is a stunning figure! Love the reflected light blues from his jacket into his face.

Brad - I like this very much. The light on his face is super and the expression with the raised right eyebrow is lovely. A very good portrait indeed.

Wonderful portrait -- I love how the face is the center of attention and everything else is less detailed and somber.

What a wonderful expressive portrait, Brad. I love his one raised eyebrow and expression.

Re: Listen to your wok man

Ah the colors, and the expression of the man's face, as he is not impressed, but slightly amused. Great painting.

Re: Listen to your wok man

Beautiful portrait. I like very much how you've captured the hues of the surroundings and his clothes on his face. Your choice of the yellow behind his shoulder nicely highlights the blue of his dress.
