Snack Time - A Study using Computer Graphics

I did a drawing last week of a man in a hat standing and hunching over a pedestal. I thought the pose is interesting and can be a basis for a painting.
I tried a few compositions using Artrage in my computer. Struggled quite a bit as usual. Finally settled down to these. Still don't know which version I like better. I learned a few things. For this kind of painting, the detail modeling is not as important as the gesture. The design element takes over. I just wish when I paint on canvas, I can be a little painterly as Edward Hopper. I will respond to what's on the canvas.
