"The Glance"

This young lady had such a strong cast shadow that I just had to try and paint her...even the subtle shift of values reads as a dark and a light under and on her chin and her cheek. That's one thing I learned this year.. among other things...but a lighter touch with the pigments can be just as effective as a strong hand.

the expression is great. You get the sense of shadow even though you aren't going really dark with the values.
