Face on the Canvas

Here's the first pass of my portrait on the canvas. It will get sharper, plus more wrinkles and other marks, but not polished, because it's an in-progress painting and not a reflection.
I did this working from a few white chalk marks, and a photograph taken a few weeks ago.  I stopped before I blended all the subtle color changes into silly putty.

Here's the whole thing at current stage.
I need to do something to the mirror surface. Make it slightly hazy? Add gleams of reflected light? And the frame needs punching up. Think I'll set it up in the studio and work on the frame and the mirror surface from life instead of from the photo.
