The man looks directly and intensely at us, his face has strong rugged features, a closed mouth, and broad nose, his ears appear slightly uneven on his head. Van Gogh’s ink strokes are similar to his paintings: short cross hatches, lines, and energetic dots to convey energy and texture. The lines and textures vary from light to dark to form the shape of the face. The hat and jacket have less definition and more blank space, drawing attention the face. The background is a series of uneven small dots scattered over the entire surface of the paper.
