Two Studies of Giuseppe

Here are two paintings I did of Giuseppe.
They are both of the same pose but seen from different angles, and in the second quicker study, I decided to try a grisaille in oils for the first time.
It's quite surprising to me how different in character the sitter appears in each picture.
The more sensitive, spiritual look in the first painting is certainly a truer reflection of Giuseppe's nature.
