Oil Portrait from old B&W photo.

Hi everybody,
it's my first post here, at RetouchPRO. I think, the best way to introduce myself it's show some of my work... So, here is the portrait of the guy from WWII times. Hope you like it.

Hey, 3ton...

Let me add my welcome and kudos for your fine work. Kind of an interesting twist... restoring old BWs and converting them to paintings. Very cool concept. Well done.

Glad to have you aboard.
