I tried to capture the passion and mood of fado.

This had to be difficult on such a small format. I really like the warmth in it. I think it would be really lovely done large. Wonderful job.

I agree with Susan, I think this would make a great larger piece. The low lighting really gives me the feel of an interior at night. Another winner Edward!

This is such a gem of a moment you captured Edward. The lighting makes it feel intimate and dramatic. Her hand gesture is wonderful. Her face and mouth isn't overworked. Just beautiful! Wish I could see it in person.

Ed, you really did capture the emotion and spirit of Fado...especially in the singer. Her expression is very powerful.

Definitely reminds me of the restaurant in Lisbon where we enjoyed a remarkable night of music, dance and a fine meal. Can't forget the bottomless wine glass...ha!
