Monday Painting

This week we painted a young woman who has modeled for us before. Her mother's a painter so she has had plenty of modeling practice. I will show you my start but the finish will have to wait till later. And I'll show you the painting that I did of her 3 years ago, too (see 13 April entry).
At this stage of the painting, I have toned the canvas with ultramarine blue and cadmium orange and wiped down the highest lights with a piece of viva paper towel. Then block in the darks with the same mix I used to tone the canvas.
Next comes the color...
