a lot got more work before I added color. Back of the hand needs much more work to look right I guess, no fingers should show...

I think the hand is hard, it is much better than it was, but it still doesn't read right. But I notice a lot more, like on his left arm, the vein is too far to the side, her face and other parts are way too bright, for some reason, when I added the color two things happened.

1) I noticed more thing that had evaded me before
2) I hate it, until the colors are "right", the color sucks...

put a couple more hours into it making value and drawing corrections and playing with rough color - I guess it is ok as an underpainting. Next step is to take a few places and see if I can actually overpaint it and make some of it look right. Still learning, still seeing more (wearing glasses now), still trying.

thanks Frank, here is another cut after a few more hours on it. Am having fun and I think I made a little more progress. I DO think this execrcise is helping me see better... Perhaps not Right, but better..

If I may paraphrase, you're looking for the soul of the subject, that which brings the story to light. S-
