The background wall on this one is finally bone dry. I took a close look at it and its same-size reference photo and realized the colors I've been using are far off the mark (it's a commissioned piece, and the request was to make it as close to the photo as possible); mostly they need to be darker, or in the case of the background, bluer. So I will have to repaint the white wall background again. But before giving up the painting to another 2 weeks of drying time, I worked on the hand and the little painting in the upper right hand corner.

Also: worked on Eddie's face and arm today, and the likeness is better.
