Painting in Progress: Flipping the Bird

I'm not sure I use enough lights... what do you think? (SARCASM)

I love this photo. Yet it is still a challenge because I am really trying to keep the integrity of the original colors. I always end up very high contract and saturated but I want to stay true to the photo. This session I focused entirely on the people and the motorcycling and correcting some ofthe size issues. I had his arms and legs too skinny and in the wrong place. He looked like stretch armstrong. He's better now.

I also need to come up with an idea for the border. I'm thinking of the vintage paper again but not sure specifically what kind. Any other ideas/suggestions?

How about a vintage map from the southwest?
