More Color Games

Here's one with Cad Green, Cad Lemon, Cad Orange, and White. That green isn't as tricky as it may seem. Even with a full palette, one often reaches for greens to mix a cooler part of the skin tone, so there's nothing too surprising there.

The challenge, again, is the fact that with this set of colors, I can't get a really dark value. So again, I have to work within the compressed value range.

The Impressionists often worked in a limited range in the higher key, so it's perfectly do-able. Mine isn't really Impressionist in approach, but still, limiting the value range has that atmospheric feel, doesn't it?
