Very nice Janet!!
I like your subject and the dramatic lighting .
Your work is always inspiring. As far as crits, his right shoulder may be high but that’s being picky…

Thanks Jerome for commenting.
I reviewed the source photo. His shoulder seem ok compared to the source. I think that what's happening is that I didn't paint the seam on the shirt, on his left shoulder. Maybe that is giving the illusion that it is higher or maybe it is the way he was sitting. Will take a look again. Thanks.

Hi Janet,

coudn't miss this portrait of yours. So thought provoking. I like how you play with the light and shadow and use very bright colors between. Lovely sunburned skin color.
Gorgeous portrait.

I like it and the use of green, but one thing niggles for me. It looks blurry overall, and don't think it should. I think, more hard lines, at least.

Thanks Annie and Sandra for your comments.
Greg - the bluriness came from the jpg conversion.
