Change a part, change the whole

The head was moved on Sunday, The ankles were relocated on Monday.  Today, Tuesday, I will look at the toes.  Color is introduced sparingly.  Ivory Black is a somewhat brittle pigment and dangerous to build up in the thin layers as subsequent layers of paint may not adhere.  This requires vigilance and lscraping as needed.  The palette so far is titanium white, ivory black, yellow ocher, burnt sienna, cobalt blue.  

This is not easy.  It challenges me everytime i put it on the easel.  'Once you learn to draw; you will never doodle again.'  Nate Goldstein, or was it Angelo? from a long time ago in art school.
