I’m starting with the shadows on the figure first as it is much easier to judge other colors and values once the shadows are blocked in.
At this point the painting is looking a bit weird. That is normal for this early stage in the painting. It’s hard to judge what is correct and what is not when the areas surrounding what your looking at is completely different. Once I have the whole painting covered with its initial block-in it will be much easier to adjust colors and values. As for now I’m just looking at getting the value close and pushing chroma based on color temperature.
