Contemplation step 5

I continued to darken the darker values in the skin tones. I also tried a new technique to blend the areas in shadow into the background. I added a wash of warm brown to the background but extended it over the darker skin tones to make them fade into the background. I have to do a lot more work on the face yet, this is just a rough indications of features right now. And there are still lots of washes to go all over the body. I'll have to start working on the hands and feet as well.
