Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

Wonderful.
The only adjustment is to the gentleman's right ear ( ieur left as we view it). As for the eyes...the old man maybe going blind in his left eye and that is why his right one seems clearer.
Congratulations on a superb piece of work.

Kind regards,
Eggy.

Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

No, what I meant was that the left eye's sclera looks too bright (light)...too equal to the right eye which is in the light. The right eye should be brighter based on the light source, not that the one looks clearer than the other one. Hopefully that helps clarify what I meant. Again, I reiterate, it's a great picture. Any critique I ever give is to be helpful, not to tear it apart so I hope it doesn't come across that way.

Truly can feel a sense of resignation in his eyes. Beautifully captured. Inspiring to behold!

Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

Awestruck is the only word that comes close to expressing my feeling about this old man portrait! I would never have guessed out of that strong first layer that a wonderful portrait would emerge. Talent is in your fingertips! Paint on and on and on!!!!
