Resurrecting An Oldie

I put this one away months ago because I couldn't handle the skin tones. I was working from a less-than-perfect grab shot, and a couple of the figures were either poorly lit or somewhat obscured. Since the portrait workshop, I've been pulling out from the stack some paintings that I'd abandoned or stopped working on; now I'm approaching them with (hopefully) a better sense of how to proceed.

I tentatively reworked a few of the faces here, though there's till more to do. Looks like the young woman on the left needs darker shadows, for example.
