Taking the paint with the main elements finished and expressive stains and forms I was looking for, I can add only the atmospheric effects to give that endpoint to the image. Also some extra brushstrokes, as well as various objects and ornaments
those are preferable to add at the end. I concentrate on improving the overall color, again using the Levels and Color balance. Previously, the intensity I was not convinced, so I apply more contrast in general with new color layers, dark and saturated colors from the sides toward the centre. Finished the image with a lot of attention, because there are the focus of interest, on the anatomy of the face, hands and the lighting effects shown.
After all, I think that I have been able to summarize as possible and concentrate it on the points of interest. In the end, I hope have been help to you and if I have contributed giving you a different view to expand your knowledge, mission complete.
