Reworked throughout with much additional shading, for instance in the area beneath the table, lower right (the ends of extra diagonal shading lines protrude over the lower edge of the image), on the table left of the hammer and around the hammer, the lower left corner, the sitter's right hand and cuff and the area left of this hand, to his clothes (below the white collar and on his left shoulder), and to the back of the chair, for example just right of the sitter's head and below the small lion's head to the right. There also appears to be additional areas of diagonal shading added along the wall.
