This is, I hope, the final preparatory sketch for a large commission - the final piece should be 40" wide by 70" high. Probably twice as big as most of the work I have done so far. The three previous sketches were nice, and one was a clear favorite on my facebook page. But the client asked for something in between the three - not a full body, but not an extreme closeup. I think this is a nice solution. See the twinkle in his eyes?
