This seems to me to be the most successful of the blue period portraits, David.
Lots of very subtle touches adding up to more than the sum of the parts.
I like the way the subject's facial expression suggests that he's come through a hard life and reached a place of calm and clarity. There's a lot of self-belief there, with his direct look at the viewer, but without any hint of confrontation.
The light and shade are ideal too.
Excellent portrait.

Your so right James, it took a bit of time to find "that" expression but I knew he had it in there somewhere.
Many thanks
Light and shadow on the face is wonderful. The visible eye looking at us - wonder what the other eye is doing. The crazed face in the tattoo contrasting with, what I think of as, the sublime face of your model. I think this is rather cheeky.
