Head, Study

It's twue, it's twue! I didn't believe it when I was told....
A cool color in the light comes forward and a warm color in shadow recedes. (The rule is, warm comes forward, cool recedes.) I used ultramarine in the lights on the left side of the head and forehead, not that you can see them with the camera I am using, but they are there and they make a difference. This is an exercise for the Jennifer Balkan class, to use warm next to cool next to warm, traveling across the topography of the head.
