What I found:
- Note: the background is the blue coming through the back of the vellum.
- All that blue coming through made it difficult to get the right color choices in the outfit. (This is why the uniform is well, not a uniform color - I think maybe the combination on the hat is the closest to what I want, but I'm not entirely happy with it either.)
- All that blue coming through on the face was near impossible to get rid of - as a result the face just kept getting more orange.
- I need to be more careful with the underpainting, if I do it too quickly it will be streaky.
So, I'm on to another color study. This time I may choose something entirely different for the underpainting - I rather like that idea, but the blue may not be working because its CPs and not oils, or it may not be working because I'm not Parrish! :-)
