Thanks for the comments everyone. Had a fun time painting Athena. She's a great model. I really enjoy backlit poses and the limitations of working in such a narrow value range.Trying to rely on temperature changes to turn form instead of value is always challenging.

The skintones are great,
i like the saturation where skin
is reflecting light into more skin on the belly,
the nose has backlight and just looks how supose to, also nice bounce light
of the floor fabric into the legs making them less saturated, awesome painting, love all the work in this blog, would be interesting to know your thoughts meanwhile you paint, you sure know what you are doing.
