An intriguing subject - bearded man with tattoos.  Look closely to see if you can find the swallowtails. Didn't mean for it to be the "Find It' game, but seems it became that.  Fun!  I actually love this painting.  The subject very different from my sunlit figures. Of course as I went along I had Sargent in mind. Certainly not his gorgeous buttery brush strokes, but my painting became more about designing the negative space to support the positive. Learning to marry the darks/lights of positive/negative space is a good lesson.
