Magdalene Revisited

Finally had the courage to return to my painting from the summer class. It is coming along nicely. Lesson learned: even when mixing only two colors of oil paint for the skin, there are a group of shades that are warm and vibrant and a group that are dull. How is this possible? I still do not know, but I have learned to recognize if I have mixed the vibrant or the dull version. Ah, the mystery that is paint.
