I particularly like the nature of the eyes... so life like and they work to make a strong connection between the viewer and the painting. I find a white background works well with this particular image... a grey or black seems to enhance the textural nature of the background and lessens the contrast between the apostle and the background. There is also a bright thin vertical line along the left edge which becomes visible with a grey or black background. You are a man of many skills Christopher. Thank you for sharing.

It's a little dangerous to critique a painting that obviously executed

Christofer, you are as skilled at painting as you are at photography! The lighting on your portraits is always exciting and when I opened up your picture I thought 'how did he get that painterly effect' - now I know!

It actually has the same "feel" as your photographs. It seems you already have a style! Nice work.

I have to say very intriguing. I couldn't decide (before reading the description) if it is a painting or a photo! ... Neat work I have to say, specially the eyes and their looks.
