Finding a balance between imagination and realism. After the lay-in (getting a first layer to start setting up value and color relationships) this time I decided to tackle the flesh tones in the face first before developing other areas. I'm trying for a dusk or night time look so I mixed a "flesh" color first and then added some different blues and maybe a little Raw Umber to shift the color to look like a moonlit situation. Trial and error, experimentation. I like what I found.

Blues I experimented with: Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue.
