This doesn't even feel like a painting, it's as though you've carved the man's face into existence... using paint. If that makes sense... Fantastic work :)

David- I saw this in the newsletter and noticed that you did the eye's last. I'm starting to work on portraits and most of the sources that I've found say that you should do the eye's first after you get the major shapes laid in (I don't know why, but I figure it's to get the sharpest details set so you have something to judge by) Could you say why you left this for last? Another great piece btw! - Robert

I think often eyes are first because they have a distinct shadow shape. In this painting my eyes were deep in the shadow of my brow so the whole socket was the general shadow shape I started with. For me what matters most is to establish the shadow shapes accurately first. Then I try and paint in the light first, and paint in the shadows last. Since my eyeballs themselves were deep in shadow, I did them later.
