I thought I would have another go at painting him:

This is better, closer to my mind's eye version too (although once again looks much worse in the photo than in real life: note to self, examine camera settings).  I think I need to work on the outer corners of the eyes, they don't look right (although arguably he should have a bit of a disconcerting stare, I'd like it to be disconcerting rather than 'hang on there is something drawn wrong here).

The colours are better in this version.  I drew it in pencil, shaded in yellow ochre, and then did the skin with pinks made from a mixture of buf titanium and a bright red.  Faces clearly have more bright red in their composition than I thought.
