Reflection in Sunglasses

It's hard to resist looking at the images in mirror sunglasses.  This morning, I was struck by this one and had to paint it. Here's the painting in progress.

The final is on top. The big changes between its "almost done" stage and finish were: the change in the sunglass reflection to minimize the dark trees that looked, dead center, like an angry eye;  returning the slope of the chin to the original sketched in shape; a fuller lower lip; and refinement of the chair straps so they wrapped more fully around the metal bars.
