Stephen's portrait, step 2

I worked on this in class yesterday. At first I thought the orange underpainting was a big mistake (see earlier post). The fleshtones looked awful next to the orange. But my instructor convinced me to wait until the the entire painting was blocked in to evaluate the color. Voila! The orange adds an overall warmth to the painting that I wouldn't be able to get otherwise.
