I am drawn to his amber eyes! I fear that I may become hypnotized at any moment... Stylish and beautifully conceptualized, this is an exceptional piece. The face, hair, and hands are each a masterpiece in themselves: such is the fine detailing. The clothing and medallion are precisely done. What is most interesting are the strange, star-shaped and pitted "white-outs" appearing to his right shoulder and above. They have the effect of old Nitrate film stock which has deteriorated and, perhaps, might soon combust! In addition, you have provided squiggles of either brush or pen throughout the background and his suit-coat mirrors the effect of faded taffeta material, the likes of which was once used in drapery and upholstery.

So many things to like about this remarkable watercolor piece. Still, I cannot resist those eyes...
