The real challenge in working from this reference photo was the intense bright light that washed away some of the edges and facial features.  I really had to work at painting what I was seeing rather than what I know to be true, especially where the mouth and teeth were concerned.  I so wanted to finish that top lip!

Outstanding. I love the yellow light, beautiful eyes and warm glow on the inner hat.
