First colour pass on the flesh areas. The point with this layer is to set the colour regions and start to build and shape forms using warm and cool colours. The saturation is exaggerated so the hues will be present in upcoming transparent layers.
At this point the reference kind of goes out the window and the process is based more of knowledge of light, anatomy, and studying other painters. A photo tends to flatten things out, distort perspective and is not the best for judging skin tone - skin is not orange - which is usually how a camera translates it. Looking a lot at Graydon Parrish's work for inspiration. It came together quickly and I think it's the best result for this layer in the 4 paintings I've used this technique on.
