A Tale of Two Portraits ... or ... No Bridges Today

It's really starting to look like the big guy.  I can almost hear him laugh!  :)

Ali was looking rather scary at this point. The browns and pink-browns were overwhelming.  So I went over her entire face and neck with a thin wash of aureolin.

The yellow has toned down her skin tones, and now I am able to work on modeling her features with pinks, lavenders and blues.
I rode Bruno before settling in to paint today. We both seemed to have benefitted from yesterday's lesson. The shoulder-in and leg-yield were much easier.

As always, your comments are most welcome.
