How many portraits have you done, hundreds? Your good. But a niggle, the hairline as it comes down the side of his face is too hard, there's a lighter part in front of it, but if it was smudges some, much better. And the one hair wide line that comes out the end of his eyebrow, looks like a missed stroke, unless it's really there;-)

A lovely portrait Jean, I love the colours and the strength you've given to the skin. Is it the pose or the man that makes this ref so interesting?

It's certainly painterly. Wow! looks very classic.
