Portrait Painting, Sitting for the final touches

Dr. Fawzi Abdulrazak visited my studio for the final touches.  I like to work on the majority of the painting from photographs and then have the subject sit for the finishing details.  I always have the subject see the final result. I change any part of the painting which is of concern to the client; it is always good to see the painting through the client's eyes.  In this case, Fawzi thoughtI could get a more accurate eye color.
