David,

This is really good. But... I think the dark area under his nose needs some mustache detail. It's also a tad too dark in my opinion. Even in dark areas there will be variations of value and it looks to be one color. It also doesn't follow the shape of the mustache - it forms a straight line.

Just my observations (and who am I?)

Still a great piece!

this is stunning. your use of textures is wonderful, and the way you've captured the green undertone of his skin is very convincing. i love how such loose brush strokes can suggest so much. most of all, i love that left eye.

The colours in this are amazing. The title suits the piece down to the ground. I'd give anything to be able to use oils like this!

A simple and very effective composition. . .I think you captured the title perfectly in the mood of the painting.

I would ask you all to ignore the obvious wet paint in the lower right near the signature. lol
