I painted this last two weeks, without any intention to "copy" exactly, only for exercise. The main aim was to capture the emotion on his face, and to create the wright mood.
The sketch was done about half an year ago, without any special preparation of the white canvas.
I specially changed the background, to create a hallow around his head.
Please add your criticism, what is (very) wrong, your opinion is WELCOME!
