This is a toned canvas (the first step in preparing a future painting).
It is NOT a finished painting!
But if you personally knew someone like Saatchi (a rich guy who made his money from the Maggie Thatcher campaigns, and now deals in art) he will find someone who will praise this finished painting and explain you how important it is to break away from art rules, bla bla. And the Dutch will organize a conference where that art critic will be invited to talk. Because that's modern.
I dont care, there's always been someone who sells a syrup which cures cancer, combats hair loss, grows back a toe and turns gays into straights. The thing is, some people in this century still buy that. Including the "revolutionary art".
If you like the canvas I just posted, my advice is go to a home depo and buy a roll of wallpaper in that tone. No need to pay huge money because that paper roll is signed by the artist of the day.

post for the public who is interested in knowing more about the art of drawing and what to look for, when you look at :-)

there is a difference between hyper-realistic drawing (fig 2) and detailed drawing (fig 1). 
As you can notice in the first example, the artist (not me) goes for technical excellence to the point of reproducing perfectly a photograph. I personally am in awe when i see such work but I dont understand the point of it. After all, one could easier take a photo... Hyper-realism is seldom an invention, it often copies pixel by pixel a photograph (never a life model). 
When it comes to hyper-drawing something that doesnt exist and fooling my eye into believing it's actually a photo, that's a different conversation.

by the way, this posting is not to judge or evaluate anyone. I just think a large section of the public is not aware of these things. For whichever reasons.

Back to my drawing (fig 1), detailed drawing intends to keep you always alert that what you are looking at is the result of a hand passing over a sheet of paper, while holding a pencil. This way of drawing gives me an immense pleasure, as it allows me/one to deal with "the shadow problem". (to mention of of the reasons)
About shadows volumes could be written, and they should, as little info is available.
Shadows have a direction. 
On one particular surface, there could be 2 or more shadows of different directions.
Two superimposed shadows add, in opposition to light behavior. 
Light separates objects (the borders between objects are more visible), shadows unify them so it's very difficult to paint/draw in shadows and give depth to that area. If one doesn't, the whole area looks flat.

I love shadows because they always reward the patient man...
