An oil painting that is amazingly simple in composition and subject, but hauntingly riveting in execution: Chiaroscuro III by ~valkenburg. The title, Chiaroscuro, refers to the strong lighting contrasts used in the painting. Caravaggio is well known for his genius with this painting technique.

Congrats on the daily deviation! It's very good- full of emotion. Very well done! It seems as if he was painted to make him look unattractive- The small eyes added to this.

Thanks! I always try to put as much emotion as possible into my paintings!

The nose is a bit lop-sided. (thought you needed something other than blind praise today...not that I wouldn't be more than happy to extol you much praise...)
