Portrait of my Uncle Ronnie

This piece is around 24"x36"- it's close to life-size. It was completed last summer, but I haven't gotten the chance to take a picture of it until now. It's currently hanging in the terminal at the Winter Haven Airport about 20 minutes from my house.

I did this for a local aviation-themed competition, but it turned out to be a great exercise for my portrait skills- capturing a likeness, incorporating a photo into an environment, etc. This was only photo-reference.

Any critique would be awesome, thanks guys!
