losing some entirely.
Both value studies were done quickly--an hour or two--with value accuracy and edges in mind. Tom taught me how many more sketches I have to do to get where I want to go with both. Jerry's monochrome scheme was much more comfortable to do. With Tom, I tried Holbein The Younger's pink underlay to see if a mid-tone flesh tones simplified the value dance. I can't decide if it confuse me or it helped. A mid tone pinkish flesh tone certainly made more sense. There were a lot more soft
edges with Jerry and Tom than with Johnny Depp. Depp was mostly hard edged. The harsh, overhead lighting made him that way.
