And as far as that's concerned, I'm actually pretty happy with this piece; I think a lot of the color variation is working, and it's getting closer to having the effect of light I've been trying to achieve, and I think I managed to pull off a little glow in the background around her hips. So I think, for the most part, I can cross color off of my list of things to stop sucking at with oils. Next up is edge control, after that brush work. Then the ever-present problem of actually drawing a decent figure to paint on top of, gonna be pushing that forever, which I thoroughly look forward to.
Hope ya dig it!
