Shadow Play

This is my entry for this week's DPW Challenge:  The Hand Challenge.  I found myself wishing that my palette included yellow ochre and burnt sienna.  With the six colors I use regularly, mixing the flesh tones was very challenging.  I need LOTS of practice!

I hope you're having a great weekend.  Happy painting!
