America: Daniel

Yesterday afternoon I did the final modeling of the face on this one, and also worked on the arms:

 And I spent some time on the door on this one:

The door (in the reference photo, at least) appears to me to be pinkish, and it was fun learning to find the right mix for it. That turned out to be a combination of Cad Orange and Perm Blue, believe it or not, with some titanium white. It's a pretty color, and it's a nice complement to the darker blues and greens around it, which all show up in the shadow details of the door trim. The painting looks a mess right now but I'm still making adjustments to the color and the values. Soon it'll start to have a real presence.
