Nancy Form Beginning

Got started on painting the chin. Slow going, as I'm trying to get each small section exactly right before moving on. I decided to go with a warmer shadow mixture than I used in the ebauche by adding more Red and Yellow Ochre. I'm using a small Raphael synthetic round and I'm placing one stroke next to another without much blending. I know Tony Ryder in his demo starts with a dark base and then works up to the lights, but my training is more to go right for the exact tone and then adjust it if needed. The hardest part is keeping the big forms in mind while playing with the smaller ones. That's where the poster hopefully will come in handy.
