As hard as you try, it is impossible to find fault with this artwork. From the choice of colours to the execution, everything is just right. It reminds me of the old agfa film, well done.

What I love about your paintings is that they don't look "painted dead". Some artists are amazing at details but their artwork loses its vividness and looks stiff and artificial. However you manage to capture an amazing photorealism with keeping the essence and the life of the subject and the artwork.
This really astonishes me and is a huge inspiration!
