    Very nice Mike (y) The flesh, the hair and the vivid blues are great

    Any chance we can see a shot without a flash and under natural light? (Flashes give pictures a high specular reading)

    I don't think that much more advice would make better here a very good standard indeed, I think you have done all very well.

    Well done, Michael! I agree, I don't think there's anything you need to add. You've gotten some nice richness to the colors, especially on the blue mantle, and on the flesh tones, I think.

    Prost!

    Hello Mike,

    As said in our contact, very nice done and the colours are rich. The second photo without flash is great now. (y)

    I hope there coming a lot of many busts of this quality, and I know, they are coming soon...;)

    Looks great Mike! One thing that really stands out for me is the hair (and there's a lot of it!), always a challenge IMO.

    Thanks guys, I took Matt Springer's acrylic painting class last summer in Gettysburg. I use his painting theories from that class. I apply the same idea to Blues ,whites , reds ect. I really don't know what I am doing I just do what he said to do in the class , thin layers ,lighten or darken as you go.Highlight here and there. Some of the colors have 14-20 layers or more. All these good comments inspires me to paint more.
