Sean Connery (x-posted in Oil Painting)

In order to practice a looser style of painting I made the attached oil portrait of Sean Connery. It was obviously made from a photograph on canvasboard sized 30 * 40 cm.
Comments as usual appreciated.
Thanks for passing by.

Re: Sean Connery (x-posted in Oil Painting)

It looks OK as a first pass for a portrait.
There are some drawing issues, like the position of the eyes in relation to the mouth. The tonal modelling of the face needs further work, for example the nose looks a bit flat. Highlights in the beard are a bit too light. The hue of the chest looks wrong.
Criticising a portrait is a whole lot easier than painting one!
C&C always welcome.
