L'ORANGE...365 Days of Drawing..

I pushed the light in my teaching class yesterday to nail home some color harmony using a blue gel and orange reflector board - the set up, clothing etc. also all being in shades of orange and blue.

Time was short in class with me helping students with their own studies so I had to finish my class demo when I got home, not wanting to loose the lesson for myself.

I lost the likeness with no photo to work from but I did manage to hold onto the original orange toned canvas in the shadow side of the face which I was happy about.
