But, Irene's uncle said, comparing my painting to the original said the shadows weren't deep enough on the face. So here, I deepened the shadows using a wash of medium and burnt sienna. I also tried a wash of cassel earth. The Cassel earth (very black) wash was a mistake. I also applied a bit more red ocre on the lips. I think that the the tone on the right side of her neck is the right one, maybe I will reapply this tone, but I still can't seem to get deep shadows, maybe I am too afraid.
