    Navy coat accentuates his eyes very nicely. The beard helps out too.

    Love this portrait. He looks enigmatic. Also as the title says he's an artist, I've constructed the rest of the story based on that and the picture itself. I always wonder, how do you know exactly when to push the button? Because these people are not posing in the sense that you would ask them to do it again so it must take a skill that I'm completely unfamiliar with :) In any case, it's fantastic and it is quite exciting to observe these strangers giving out so much visually speaking.
