I really like Alice Neel's art work because of the colors he uses and the different details that are in each picture. In this painting specifically, you can see the wrinkles in the boys shirt and pants. Also, the different shadowing from his arts being on his head is interesting as well. You can see the different brush strokes in the whole picture which is a technique I noticed Alice Neel does a lot. Overall, her art is beautiful, neat and detailed.
