Acanthus head

Here, a Friday night solution, the umpteenth solution to the challenge of painting a head for this recycled frame.
Looking again at my previous work it just needed more contrast and surprise while at the same time having some resonance with the period. This coloured drawing in oil sticks pleases me tonight, its energy end verve lifted my tiredness. Can I leave it at this stage without sapping the life it has within it?
