Finished Ebauche

Finished the ebauche. It's a little more chromatic than it looks here in spite of using a limited palette of Ivory Black, Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, and Cadmium Red Light. Lost my way a little around the neck. I wasn't feeling it and I wasn't really "on the form". It's like a giant map of my mistakes which I'm looking forward to correcting when I start form painting in earnest tomorrow. The hardest part of the ebauche technique is that you can't really judge the value of the paint until you put it on the canvas, because of the thinned down paint.
