this is the first painting i've done since i got out of undergrad... and it's been a few years! i'm not sure how i feel about this piece.  some days i like it, some days i don't.  i sketched the outlines and visible lines (like in the cheeks and around the nose) with permanant marker directly on the canvas - never done that before and i like the effect - but i'm not sure if i should do more work to the face to make it more, well, better, pardon my grammar, or if i should doctor the background or what... suggestions?

i really like it...it took me a minute to take the whole thing in and really warm up to it...but i like the imbalance in the whole work...to me it kinda reflects his "imbalanced" views he showed in his works at the time.
