Mrs. Geraldine Lawson-Color Stage 1

I read somewhere that every "classic" painting has four essential colors: red, yellow, blue, and black. I think I've got them all covered in this one. There is still much work to do on this painting, but the overall look and feel of it is coming together. In subsequent layers I hope to bring more more detail and luminosity into the face. This will be accomplished by multiples layers of paint, alternating between light and dark, warm and cool values and colors.
