The depth and perspective of this piece is excellent, as is the variation of tone - the different shading brings in a variety of contrasting and pleasing textures. What is also very effective is the way you have created dappled shade onto the creases in the character's clothing; it is a lovely touch. However, my one observation is the shape of the face seems a little off; remember that the eyes should be around halfway up the head. Overall, a wonderful piece that really stands out, and that you should be very proud of.
This is great. You've really captured the essence of a relaxing, carefree moment alone with the pipe. I like especially how the sun dapples the clothing, and how the subject seems to be looking over at the birds
