I love the challenge of painting firelight using super warm tones falling on skin or just about anything else.
I started with my drawing for the day to meet the challenge and then put some paint on focusing more on the color than anything else. The warms catching the down planes of the face and the cools catching the up planes. The final light on the cheek ended up being pure yellow and white. And quite a big glob of it at that. Love big globs of paint, don't you?
