Naomi Gold - stage 2

 First colour pass over the whole painting. I decided to paint glazes of Transparent Oxide Red and Transparent Oxide Gold over the background which has produced an effect I like but has thrown my plans of keeping the whole picture in a limited palette out of the window. The picture will be now more saturated than I intended so maybe I'll do that on the next one! The plan was warm shadows and cool highlights which I have kind of stuck to but calling it "Naomi Gold" made me veer to having gold in the painting (the original plan was that just referred to the light hitting the jewelry but...) but essentially the figure has been painted with the limited palette in mind.

Colours used were: Manganese Violet, Winsor Violet, Ultramarine Violet, Burnt Sienna, Genuine Chinese Vermillion, Permanent Orange, Naples Yellow and Zinc White.
