|George posed for the LAG again this month. I realized after I started painting that I had not brought any blues and I had only permanent green light. Most of this was rendered in burnt umber, burnt sienna, cadmium red light, yellow ochre & permanent green light. Upon returning to the studio I mixed phthalo blue and burnt umber together to form the darkest darks.|

|When the model was ready to leave, I snapped a couple of reference shots to share with my other painters. That evening I spent another 2 hours in the studio working from the photo reference I took to bring the sketch below further to fruition. Adding the dark to the right of the figure brought out the reflective light on the right of her face to better describe her jaw area.|
