Two Quick Figure Studies

As with the landscape study I did last week I limited the time on these two paintings.  I also added orange to my palette, which has added some much needed life and vibrancy to the pieces.

The full figure was timed at one hour, the back was timed at half an hour. The last figure study I did a couple weeks ago looks grey and pallid by comparison.
