Thanks for hosting Gilian, I was immediately drawn to this reference and recycled a dud canvas to do it on. I was getting very hung up on the arms and hands so I stopped at 1 hr 45 min. I quite like what has started to happen so I will go back later and finish it. This is acrylic on canvas 20 in square.
Thanks for looking
All C and C welcome

Really great Christine. The colours are super, he is a tough ref with the look of concentration and tricky hands. Can't wait to see the finish! Thanks for sharing.

I just spent another hour on this and have not been able to get back to it. That left hand has driven me nuts and I cant seem to get it right. Anyway I am calling it finished because I wont get back to it before the end of the week.
Thanks for looking and any advice on the hand would be greatly appreciated.

Nice play of colours in this, Christine.
The thing I notice about the (his) right hand is that the line and highlights of the top knuckles are leaning slightly to the (our) left in the ref. Your version leans to the right. The index finger in yours is perhaps a touch long and at the wrong angle, the nail should be more towards the viewer. The corresponding knuckles on his left hand also lean to the left and slightly more of the back of the hand than you've shown is visible. That hand needs darker tones and backlight on the nails too.

You have captured that look of intense concentration so well.
