Wyeth and Model

The pic below is what I think, might be, the final. Thoughts?

Just finished the sketch on this one. From a reference photograph of the artist N.C. Wyeth in front of his painting "Round-Up", using a model who is seated on a saddle. This one will be interesting to see if I can pull it off. Definitely the most difficult to date.

Appreciate it, Rob. I wasn't sure if I could pull this one off, but I'm really happy with the outcome.

Thank you Kyle. This one has been a lot of fun to paint. Still trying to get NC's head painted correctly. If I can do that, I'll call this one finished.
