"Raven (Day 3)"

I want thank all of you who have commented on my yesterday's post. I love the synergy and felt so fortunate to have it. It is a good "omen" (I learned this word from my son) for my future success. I really appreciate it.

On the third day, I worked on her legs and feet. I have to extend them quite longer to make the proportion correct. I have spent much longer time painting her feet than doing her face, because I have not painted enough feet. I have to do many more hands and feet before I feel comfortable to figure painting. The color in the form shadow area are much cooler because I have light coming from a window on the right. Now the figure has been presented in general. I will work on the background to enhance the design. I have looked many figure paintings done by Pino. I think I can reference some of his approaches to make this painting more exciting.
