My effort yesterday was to get the darks darks enough (I resist this for some reason) so that the form sits down in space with authority. And also, to investigate what is actually happening in the shadows. I have in my head a large pink still life and it would be great to know better how to use pink, such a funny shocking color. I had good painting yesterday, not much frustration and some flow. I am also working on some baby portraits which I'll post soon.
