I am liking this second painting better even though there are a lot of areas to modify/correct. As can be seen, I rounded the face more in Stage 2 from what it looked like in Stage 1. The misket will be removed, mainly in the eye area, and finish them. Then, correct the mouth, right ear/hairline area and bottom of the nose. Of course there are other areas such as the shirt, etc. I could almost stop here and call this a success just because of the shape of the face and because the darks aren't as heavy, except near the right ear. That area does look rather heavy so will try to lighten it slightly.
