3073: Mixing Shadow Hues

Most of the session this morning was spent mixing new colors.

It took me a long time to figure out the right hue, value and chroma for the lighter shadows in the center of the painting. So not much paint added to the canvas but I’m ready to get a lot done tomorrow. Hopefully the paint I mixed today doesn’t dry to quickly in this heat. I’ll put my palette in the fridge.
