Amazing artwork, it's been in my favorites for a long time now. All of your portraits are so expressive, so genuine. Ah! You're so an inspiration for portrait drawing I can't even begin to explain how much I praise your artwork. Fantastic!

The lighting in this one is great. Compromising harsh direct light with the local color of the skin is always tricky, but you were able to do it just right, and with large brush strokes as well. The reflection on the lips came out really nice as well.

I can easily imagine this portrait as a cover for Alain Robbe Grillet's La Jalousie (1957).

Thanks. I'm not familiar with Grillet.

His novel La Jalousie has a writing style as unique as Faulkner's or Hemingway's is unique. The novel sees things entirely from the point of view of a banana-plantation owner living in a house where there are blinds or louvres on the windows, and he is often peering through them watching his wife, named A_. (Her full name is never fully revealed, but the reader is supposed to be thinking of the adulterous Anna Karenina, or the Scarlet Letter (A)) The only other character is a man who comes over to visit the two of them on occasion. No act of adultery is ever caught. Everything is suspicion. You really get into the mind of a man whose brain is on almost literal fire with jealousy. "Jealousy" and "Jalousie". It makes for superb reading.
