Mona!

This keeps getting more and more beautiful with each step!

I love the green on her skin! What's the reasoning for this? I'm guessing it's to help tone down the warmer colors as they're added, right?

Dean, thank you for seeing beauty only in the underpainting. You are correct that green and the earlier purple/blues are added to balance the warmer tones. Here's a link to the flesh tones being added over the green with my earlier panel painting, which is also still in progress:
