warm v. cool
This is probably the most fun I've had on my self portraits so far; I forced myself to mix quickly and really lay it down fast, in chunks, blocking out the planes as I saw them, instead of noodling the paint around. Most exciting part was putting down that first swipe of cad red, its fluorescent! Haha.
Getting the tones between the warm light and the cool light was tough, keeping them hueful and un-muddied was an interesting battle. Its amazing how many colors you can find when you look hard enough; there were many subtle hues that I did not put down.
More work to be done, update either later tonight or tomorrow.
