I re-worked this piece from the other day. I like it a lot better now. It's not so dark. The dark faces just didn't seem to work.
I just started this piece, in fact I started it a few days ago. I like it a lot as it is but I haven't painted the background yet. I am at the "I don't want to ruin it" stage. So here it sits in my studio. I don't know, maybe a light blue background?
