Alexander's portrait has been sitting untouched for a while now. I keep looking at it as a painting rather than a portrait. (when does a portrait become a painting or when does a painting become a portrait?)
I was counting on putting more work into the jacket and hands....but friends who have viewed it IRL have all expressed differing opinions....this is unusual for me as I usually "know" when a portrait is complete.....your comments are welcome....please feel free to say what you think........as I am very open to suggestion........should I sign it?....or does it need more?
