Painted from a photo of a friend of mine. I matt framed it as it looked better.
He's not seen it yet so I would like your expert advise as I'm still at the learning stage.

 :thankyou: All for your kind words. I do have some reservation on parts of this, my own worst critic,  and glad you don't seem to see them.
This was probably my hardest painting yet due to the fact I was asked to paint it. Also the longest I have spent on one painting, around 10 hours over 5 days.
I don't think I want the pressure of commissions and I have the utmost admiration for those that do them.
Once again Thank you.

He will love it. :smitten:  It is so easy to be critical of one's own work.  But you have done a great painting and there are no criticisms here.  Fantastic!  :yippee: :yippee:
