Perhaps you can follow the sketch in yesterday's blog post after viewing the man on the left in today's reproduction of Untitled-01·02·2014. In the sketch the man holds a watch forward toward the viewer. That would not work in the painting, and neither does the central form in this "state #4". That nose has to rotate in front of the man on the right. That will happen today; it will increase, and play with, the artifice of 3-dimensions.
Yesterday's drawing is obviously an additional study (after the sketch) for the man on the left in the painting.
