Mystery Portrait-Color Stage 6

Whew!  A big change from stage 5.  I feel like I was able to salvage what I messed up last night.  Although this painting looks close to completion, there's still much work to do.  The old master's way of painting, aka, glazing, aka, indirect painting, is a series of back and forths.  Dark to light to dark to light...each layer building luminosity.  

I plan to do something different with the background.  At this point it looks very 80's ish.  Max Headroom like.
