Hi Mariano.
In my opinion this is the best Portrait you have done so far. I can see you in this. If I have a point to make it is the mouth, Your mouth isn`t like that. You are better looking than this. But I have`to say that it is an excellent portrait. Well done my friend.

Hi Joan,
what a great compliment you gave me, thank you very much Joan. Hope to improve but this is where I am at. The color palette i use was from Sharon Sprung, the mistakes mine!
