Portrait In Oils - Updated

Align CenterPortrait In Oils, 8 x 10, oil on gessoed mat board

Updated Tues AM:
I scanned the image and got a closer representation to the original and replaced the image above.
Last night, my teacher suggested a couple changes - just subtle things you probably wouldn't really notice but he said the piece was very well done. I am really enjoying working in the oil paints... surprise surprise....

Original post:
I finished the portrait in oils that I started a couple weeks ago. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. To see the reference photo, scroll down a couple posts.

I found this very hard to photograph without getting glare. And after looking at this pic online with a different monitor, I notice that my photo color is way off and is too dark.

I'm looking forward to starting a new painting in class tomorrow that is NOT a portrait!
