Dracula comparison

I posted a painting of Christopher Lee as Dracula at then end of last year. Thankfully the painting sold. However when an opportunity arrived for me to have some work included in a group show, I was wishing it hadn’t. So I was left with the Frankenstein, and I needed to do another 3 paintings to complete the series. That meant re-painting the Dracula one. I felt the original one had a decent likeness. However a comment made when I posted it on another site stuck in my head “I know its Lee, but I see a little Nic Cage in there too. Sadly.”

So with that in mind I had to grit my teeth and re-paint it. This second one seemed a lot more laboured and is less loose and painterly. But it took far less time. I just hope I managed to get the likeness a bit more spot on. Anyway I’ll let you decide here are the 2 versions.
