"Devil is in details"

I've spent approx 10 hours more on the Daryl study, usually I don't render the painting this tight, but it's good thing for a practice and to train your eye to see a small value changes and color temperature shifts, also reference photo for this painting /study have really great lighting and nice warm shadows that I like to paint. Really, the hardest thing about any painting is to know when to stop...
Practice practice practice..  :)
