I am having the worst time with my computer. It won't hold the internet connection so I have a minute here, and a few minutes there. So far, my experts haven't figured out the solution but we keep working. I feel like I am in a race against time to get this posted before the connection is lost.

Here is another Frenchman with the same set of colors: Hansa Yellow, Raw Sienna, Quin Gold, Green Gold, Brown Madder, Burnt Sienna, Indanthrone Blue, Indigo, Neutral Tint and a smidgeon of Caput Mortum for good measure. I kept the warm/cool ratio heavily balanced on the warm side. The other variation I did was to texturize each shape individually rather than creating texture patterns randomly on the sheet. It took a lot more time because I had to wait for areas to dry before I could do the next one. I don't think it makes a big difference. I think I want to do one more with the texture and this color wheel and paint the Frenchman in a realistic manner rather than this stylized version. Then, moving on to another color palette.

Hi Myrna, Computer problems are no fun; my condolences. I like the expressions you achieve with each variation. I find it interesting how color temperature and texure effects the mood of the Frenchman.
