3hr Figure Painting

Here's a figure painting done from life, a 3 hour session. I tried to focus mostly on getting the color variation logically placed; making the up-facing shadows blue from the flourescent lighting, the down-facing shadows green from the imagined foliage, the areas of reflected light from the body more orange and saturated from radiosity, and the warm yellow-orange of the key light. I think I learned a lot in that area and am getting better at seeing it, just gotta keep working on getting the drawing side up to that same level.
