It's beautiful. It's like he's thinking..."Are you gonna eat that? Really? The whole thing? All by yourself? I could eat some of it. Maybe I could just have a taste? Really?? You're just gonna eat that all by yourself... And I am just sitting right here...two feet away, Oh wait.. are your breaking off a piece for me?"
It's real. It looks so tangible... What incredible work. Beautifully captured expression and amazing detail work. Contrasts, tonal values and textures executed beautifully. I keep wanting to reach out, just to make sure it's not real. Well done on capturing the essence and life-like qualities in this portrait.
