Dana I (Nude #91), 18"x12.5"

Under the cool north light from the Palette and Chisel studio's skylight, Dana's rosy cheek appeared more accentuated than usual. I felt compelled to go after it with a touch of sanguine conté. I think I exaggerated it a bit, though. It also left me with less time to work on the rest of the figure beyond the block-in stage within the time frame of the 15-minute pose.
