    Thank you for your post @ Hue-Value-Chroma

    'Mary of the Blue lights' is freaking awesome. I'll have to read up on the brief on that
    one, but I feel like this was a nice representation of what it was.

    Thank you.

    After seeing that pic of Delirium you did for CHOW #157, I'm gonna keep an eye on this thread.

    @dwardo: glad you found the swatches useful. Thanks for stopping by.

    @psychotime: I'm a little bummed because I was pretty happy with the sketch I did for Delirium but didn't have time to bring it to a really nice finish. So I'm pretty happy you liked that one. Thanks for stopping in!

    Here's a mostly finished portrait from Marvin Mattelson's portrait class at SVA, and a quick plein-air from Memorial Day in Central Park.

    A quick landscape from my neighborhood on Thursday. I've been enjoying the effect of using straight linseed oil as a medium, but I went a bit overboard on this one. May try to do another hour or two on it to establish some opaques and because I fudged some of the color at the end when it was getting dark outside.

    The portrait looks great! By the way, I think your pencil needs to be sharpaned up a little bit more
    You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?

    @gringo: thanks! I've been experimenting with a new palette that gives me much better control of saturation.

    @biggjoee: I'm in Mary Beth McKenzie's class.

    Here's my latest piece from Mary Beth's class. Fantastic model...

    Donna from the Art Students League. Need to clean up a few edges, but generally pretty happy with this one. Would have liked another couple days, but isn't that always the case?

    @Onnophris: Thanks! She's such a great model, and so nice if you ever talk to her.

    @PMorin: Thanks!

    Right now I've been using a Reilly influenced palette, with tints and shades of different pigments pre-mixed according to a consistent grayscale (called a "string"). Each string has 9 equal steps of value in it- usually brought up in value with white and down in value with a darker pigment of a similar hue if necessary. The exact pigments I've been using vary a bit depending on the colors in the scene, but for portraits I've been using:

    - A string of neutrals (ivory black + raw umber + cremnitz white)
    - A string of Yellow ochre up with cremnitz white and down with raw umber
    - A string of Terra Rosa (Winsor Newton) up with cremnitz white and down with ivory black/raw umber
    - A string of Permanent Alizarin Crimson up with cremnitz white
    - A string of Ultramarine Blue up with cremnitz white

    That's my basic palette for portraits, plus black and white. That's all I used for the portrait of Raven. I'll supplement that with other strings if necessary- usually a green or yellow green, and higher chroma versions of the above if the clothing or background objects call for it. For example, on the portrait of Donna I needed:

    - a string of cadmium green up with cremnitz white and down with ivory black, for the skirt and top
    - a partial string of Quinacridone Magenta + Zinc white (cremnitz white killed the chroma of the red-purple magenta), for the shawl
    - a partial string of Perylene Red + zinc white, also for the shawl
