"Liz" was painted from life, under very cool and minimal north light. I felt like I was painting in the dark. Although I could see the model clearly I could not see my canvas very well. Under these lighting conditions I like to key-up the shadows and make them as warm as possible to avoid that dead gray look from the north light. Once I got it home I realized I had made the shadow values too warm. Oh well, live and learn. And as always, I'm really trying to pay attention to anatomy.
