he looks like a picture I saw once, of a character from Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities. I really like this, nice work.

Again...I am amazed by your work...this piece kinda reminds me of my wife when she gets in one of those moods...

I love the way you're able to capture so much intense energy and emotion through refined simplicity...

Never stop...

I have a couple questions, if you wouldn't mind? I have been visiting your page for a couple days. And I love your work. It is very inspiring. I am curious though how do you work with color if your working with tea? I know some teas have a tint to them. But, your colors range from so deep to desaturated. It is great what you doing with these very interesting color palettes. Coming from such an interesting medium. As far as a critique goes. All of your pieces are very powerful and moving. They have great expression and are executed well. But, I do have to say that most of them share the same composition. Now this is not an argument of background. I respect and defend that your images are powerful enough to stand without one. but, I do have to say that the composition is hurting you a bit when it comes to first glance. The audience eye is drawn right to the center; the powerful face traps your attention and than your distracted by movement and color. So your eye moves on. But, in only one direction; down. Following the paint drip. And I am not saying that is a bad thing, it is part of the point. What I am saying is, when your eye goes off the page and returns it will come right back to the center and follow the routine again. I think you should experiment with the negative space that always finds itself at the top of the page. It is as simple as a dirty wash that matches the tones of one of your focus points. A small one balanced in either one corner or both. And than a bright tone that matches a focus tone which you allow to drip towards the focus. This way the eye can come back with a rhythm if it falls off the page. But, what will most likely occur. Is that on first impression your eye will work in a sharp angular rhythm. Starting at the center, than a corner, than falling to the bottom and back again. I believe this sharp rhythm could help your already powerful pieces take the breath of your audience. They could feel emotionally exhausted by surveying the piece, and that can clash with the already powerful emotions they are feeling from the piece itself. Leading to a possibly incredible emotional experience for your viewer.

I hope I was of help or I at least made sense.

you really made sense and thank you! something I will definitely experiment with, I am about to embark on some new work in a very different proportion, this work will focus on the space below the portrait and deliberatley extend this space... after this project I will experiment with what you have suggested. Really appreciate your time and explanation.
