'Head of a Young Man' After Pablo Picasso

Right side is a portrait by Pablo Picasso on canvas in gouache titled 'Head of Young Man' from 1905 - his Rose Period.  Size: 31 x 24 cm.  

I have then drawn the same portrait and hypersaturated it to maximise the tonal variation, used complementary colours for impact.  

I feel it works well but must admit Picasso's original has real magic.
