highlights

I like the way the white of the paper indicates the strong lighting on her cheek, nose, forehead and eyelid.  That's been the hardest thing for me to train my eyes to "see"...the lights and darks, but that is what it's all about...value.  That contrast between, in which form takes shape.

the color of her skin is exquisite! Is it raw sienna and rose madder? Nice work!

Annalein, your figure painting just gets finer and finer. Still struggling with value here.
